Atlanta, GA — The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) will host two public meetings to provide updates on the Clifton Corridor Transit Initiative project. The meetings will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 6:30 p.m. at North Decatur United Methodist Church, 1523 Church Street in Decatur, and virtually on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 6:30 p.m.

The Clifton Corridor Transit Initiative project would connect Lindbergh Center Station to Decatur or Avondale Stations along a rapidly developing residential, institutional, and mixed-use corridor. Key destinations include Emory University, Emory University Hospital, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Egleston campus, and Atlanta VA Medical Center, according to a press release.

MARTA hosted engagement opportunities over the summer for the community to provide feedback on 10 options for route and vehicle type. Based on the input and analysis, the alternatives have been narrowed down to three. During the meetings next week, MARTA will provide the results of the analysis and how the community can help reach a final decision.
