The Atlanta Region-Transit Link Authority (ATL) has announced that it will host 10 community meetings this fall to discuss a list of 76 projects that would be transformative for the metro area.

The community meetings – being called “District Downloads” – will be held around the metro in October and November. The Atlanta meeting will be held Oct. 30 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at ATL headquarter’s office, 245 Peachtree Center Avenue, NE., Suite 2200, Marquis Tower One.

Citizens will also be able to upload their thoughts and ideas on the ATL Regional Transit Plan electronically through a web-based submission form.

“The District Downloads are a great way for citizens to provide feedback on the projects that were submitted to the ATL for their district,” shared Charlie Sutlive, ATL Board Chair. “Citizen engagement plays a vital role in the process of improving coordination, integration and efficiency of transit in metro Atlanta.”

The list of 76 projects includes adding rail to the Atlanta BeltLine, the Clifton Corridor rail project, a MARTA train line to Norcross, commuter rail to Clayton County and rapid transit bus lines.
