MARTA kicks off 18-month study, wants your input

Posted By on Wed, Mar 5, 2008 at 10:20 PM

UPDATE: Received a phone call from MARTA's spokesperson. The original bus route listed in the release is incorrect. Attendees of the March 29 workshop at Dunbar Recreation Center should take bus route 4.

Listen up, James.

The transit agency is conducting a series of public workshops as part of its new MOVE program. That stands for "Making Operations Very Efficient," all you acronym buffs.

"While much of the current transportation planning and studying is for projects ten, twenty and even thirty years out, MOVE will take a look at what can be done today to make MARTA a better system," a press release says.

The 18-month program is aimed at making full use of what the agency has available by reaching out to stakeholders, riders and the general public. If you want to ride MARTA but think it's too laden with problems, now's your chance to help them sort 'em out.

Dates and locations of the workshops follow after the jump.
