Public Transit

Plinky asked, “If pub­lic trans­porta­tion were avail­able in your neigh­bor­hood, would you use it?”

MARTA Bus Stop Sign

I do use it! It’s much cheap­er than main­tain­ing a car, when you con­sid­er the cost of insur­ance, gas, upkeep, etc. For those of us who don’t care to dri­ve (or whose health removes dri­ving as an option at times) or who want to “go green,” pub­lic tran­sit is a very impor­tant resource.

I only wish MARTA (Metro Atlanta Rapid Tran­sit some­thing) were extend­ed to cov­er all of metro Atlanta. Right now, it is real­ly only a viable option for reach­ing a small por­tion of the metro area.
