The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) in conjunction with DeKalb County and in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration and the City of Atlanta has begun the I-20 East Transit Initiative.  This effort will involve the identification of transportation and environmental impacts associated with the development of high-capacity transit service from downtown Atlanta to the Mall at Stonecrest in southeastern DeKalb County.

Specifically, the project will result in improvements to east-west mobility and accessibilty to jobs and housing by providing a high-capacity transit alternative in the I-20 East Corridor, which is currently unavailable.  In addition, the project will support and provide opportunities for economic development and revitalization as DeKalb County prepares the corridor for anticipated growth for the remainder of the 21st Century.

The development of the high-capacity transit alternative will proceed in two phases: 1) Detailed Corridor Analysis (DCA) and 2) the Environmental Study Process which involves the development of a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) and a final environmental impact statement (FEIS)  The study team will capitalize on the previous work efforts conducted (see Archive Section) and all work will conform to the FTA New Starts project development process.

A comprehensive public outreach effort is underway and will include many methods of communication and opportunities for community involvement.  Public involvement efforts include newsletters and fact sheets, public meetings, Facebook fan page and this project webpage.  Please feel free to explore this site further, and become a fan of the project Facebook page by clicking on the icon below:
