Attention you MARTA phobes!

The Crime Dog's picture

Despite your sky is falling OHMYGOD-CLAYTONCOUNTY-RIVERDALE panic attacks, repeat after me:

There is NO WAY IN HADES that MARTA could ever make it to Fayette.

MARTA can't afford to run the system they have, much less spend the $500M or more it would take to get here.

While we're at it, commuter buses (and commuter trains) are NOT MARTA! They go to ATL in the mornings and come back from ATL in the evenings.

I'm surprised you all haven't thrown a clot over the vanpooling that's been sprouting up all over Fayette. OH-MY-GOD THEY MIGHT BE CARJACKED AND DRIVE TO FAYETTE AND STEAL OUR FLAT SCREEN TVs!!!

Get real and get a life people. If you are that afraid of someone else's shadow, I suggest you move to North Dakota or Montana.

Considering that marta rail hasn't even come anywhere close to fayette, who would be crazy enough to suggest that? Rail is astronomically expensive per mile, it wouldn't happen. Bus service would be equally unlikely as GRTA bus service would be more applicable to our comparatively ultra low density county.

Yeah, and C-tran or something similar in fayette?? This has got to come from the folks that owe me $100 for betting me 10 years ago Fayette county would be just like clayton.

Pay up suckers

Will eventually force this matter upon Fayette County, by holding back approvals of large scale projects that have to have their approval before proceeding, since Fayette County is a part of the A.R.C Its is in the transportation planning digest for 2015, and eventually im sure the county will hide the funds necessary to fund a F-Tran style bus that is financed by the county to appease the A.R.C in a future SPLOST vote. We already have two pro transit chairs on the A.R.C from this county, and as we have seen before the commissions of this county will stop at nothing to slake their thirst for developement grants, and dollar. And will sell their souls to the devil, all in the name of developement.. Nothing will make your property values go up more than a bus stop outside your gated community. We the taxpayers are the ones who will end up providing finance to this endeavor just like Clayton got left holding the bag on C-Tran. Anyhow Crime Dog prepare for the crime wave, when you fill out the police report though, the descripiton of the get away vehicle should be easier to describe (Big white bus). I hope you end up with a Bus stop in front of your house, or at the front of your community, so you can go out and pick up the trash left in your yard daily, and enjoy the foot path worn into your lawn by the folks cutting through your yard to get to it. Not to mention the bus stop loiteriers, these are people who hang out by the bus stop with no intention of riding it, just so they can get their hustle on or hangout and be boisterous with there homies. 'Hey man yo what you need homie ha ha ha, sounds good at 2Am enjoy.. PEACE..

Fayette Area Rapid Transit rears it's head amongst the masses. Keep the faith.

Democracy is NOT a spectator sport.

I mean seriously. MARTA programmed for 2015?

Maybe you mean the commuter buses? Dude, those don't even have bus stops!!!

For commuter buses, you DRIVE YOUR CAR to a park and ride lot. Everybody hops on the bus at the same place.

If you want to get the ousted county commissioners back in office, you're gonna have to do WAAAAAYYY better fear-mongering than this. Yo, PEACE!

The new county retirement scheme will take care of that.

Im like Mcdonalds Im Lovin it.... It just keeps getting better... I wonder who will be in charge of accountability???? Sure wont be none of the clowns on the current commission. I guess since we all have nothing left to lose anyway might as well see what we can grab on out way out the door. May i suggest in the future that the commision play three card monty to decide finance issues, and just go out back and throw some dice to decide what to do with all the SPLOST money that they feel entitled too.. Im JOE ISUZU and this plan will save the county money HA HA...BLESS
