IMPORTANT NEWS AND UPDATES
NEW! MARTA is coordinating with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to extend early scoping which began last August to allow for more stakeholder and public input on potential alternatives for high-capacity transit in the GA 400 corridor from North Springs to WIndward Parkway.
As part of the second phase of early scoping, MARTA will continue to engage the public and stakeholders through social media, public meetings, newsletters, and surveys. Notices and ads will be published in the Federal Register in the coming weeks listing the date, time and location of addition public meetings.
In the meantime, we encourage you to also continue to send in your written and email comments.

The GA 400 Corridor Transit Initiative: Alternatives Analysis involves investigating the need for high-capacity transit connections between the Perimeter Center area near the interchange of I-285 and GA 400 in the City of Sandy Springs and McGinnis Ferry Road in northern Fulton County. The corridor draws commuters from throughout the region and is the origin point for many commuter trips bound for central Atlanta, Gwinnett, and Cobb Counties. These conditions have created high levels of traffic congestion on GA 400 and the few east-west arterials which cross the expressway.
The study will result in the identification of a specific alignment and technology or locally preferred alternative (LPA) that best meets the transit needs for the corridor. Once this selection has been made an environmental impact statement (EIS) will be developed followed by engineering and design activities.
