Transit on the Ballot: Know the Vote
Next Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable: Friday, October 7, 7:30-9:00am | All Saints' Episcopal Church
The upcoming transit referendum has been on Atlantan's mind for months. Opportunities to expand funding for MARTA and transit in the region are few and far between, so many are eager to support it while others are suspicious of the unintended consequences. So what's on the ballot, exactly? What does voting for a funding increase mean? Where will any money levied go? Hear from transit experts and advocates working closely on the referendum. Know your stuff as you walk, bike, bus or drive to the ballot box on November 8.
