Campbellton Corridor Transit Project
collaboration with the City of Atlanta, is investing in high-capacity transit
in the Campbellton Corridor to improve connectivity, accessibility, and
mobility in southwest Atlanta. The corridor, which links the Greenbriar Mall
area to the Oakland City MARTA Station, is home to established neighborhoods
and businesses and is currently served by one of MARTA’s busiest bus routes –
83 Campbellton Road. This historic multimodal investment will greatly enhance
the service area and transform how residents travel to points of interests
while supporting the community’s growth and development for years to come.
