Overview
The Special Projects & Analysis branch (SPA) is responsible for the following functions:
  • Long-range expansion and major investment planning
  • GIS mapping and analysis
  • Bus stop management
  • Print distribution

Long-Range Planning
SPA represents MARTA to regional, state, federal, and local agencies in studies and projects to support transit initiatives and priorities.  This includes long-range planning, such as guiding system expansion projects through the Federal funding process and identifying future locations for capital expansion projects such as fixed-guideway or bus rapid transit.

GIS & Analytics

The branch is responsible for advanced GIS mapping and analysis.  Duties in this function include developing and managing Transit System Planning’s GIS data archive, maintaining the office’s GIS base map, and conducting a wide array of mapping projects and technical analyses.  SPA also handles data requests and facilitates the provision of GIS data to partnering agencies and outside requestors.

Bus Stop Management

Bus stop management is also a key function of the branch.  This includes day-to-day activities such as conducting field surveys, investigating requests, posting rider alerts, and maintaining the Authority’s bus stop database.  SPA also coordinates with other departments for the installation of signage and passenger amenities, and reviews transportation and development plans to identify impacts and improvements to bus stop locations.

Print Distribution
The branch’s final responsibility is print distribution of MARTA’s public information.  In conjunction with other departments that design and produce print information, SPA is responsible for stocking public timetables, maps, and other information displays throughout the transit system.  This includes locations at MARTA’s 38 stations, platforms, bus loops, and at various bus stops throughout the MARTA service area.  Deliveries of print information are also made to MARTA’s operating facilities, as well as to non-MARTA locations (schools, hotels, hospitals, etc) by request.
