Relay ribbon-cutting

MARTA, City of Atlanta and Relay Bikes seek to close ‘last mile’ gap

MARTA and the City of Atlanta are teaming up to provide the elusive “last mile” for people seeking alternative ways to get around.

MARTA and the city’s Relay bike sharing program launched their partnership on July 14 with an actual bike relay from the Colony Square bike station to MARTA’s Arts Center Station. MARTA and city employees “competed” in an effort to “win” the relay.

City of Atlanta has opportunity to invest in sidewalks and bicycle paths

It’s a given. The City of Atlanta will go to voters in November to propose an additional half-penny in taxes over the next 40 years for MARTA. That tax alone initially is expected to generate more than $50 million a year.

But the City of Atlanta also has the option to ask voters whether they want to approve another half penny for five years for general transportation projects.
