Jeffrey Parker was named the new CEO of MARTA in March of this year, succeeding Keith Parker, a man who was revered by many people in this city for the gains MARTA made under his watch. Jeff inherits a system that is considered an asset for economic development and has seen renewed public investment in recent years. MARTA is currently figuring out how to spend $2.5 billion to expand and improve the system, money that comes from a half-penny sales tax approved by voters in 2016. He also inherits a system that’s old and has been historically neglected.
Parker sat down for an interview with the Decaturish Podcast to talk about a number of issues including public safety, the Clifton corridor project, Beltline rail, bus rapid transit and more.
