Transit expansion is a necessary part of an entire regional transportation system as are express lanes. Motorists need options for their trips based on how they travel. As Georgia creates a transportation system for the future, areas within the metro Atlanta region will experience growth differently. The SR 400 Express Lanes and MARTA bus rapid transit (BRT) will provide motorists and transit users more reliable trips in areas where rail expansion has not yet occurred. The SR 400 Express Lanes project is being designed to accommodate MARTA’s future BRT stations and service. There is currently no programmed project or funding for heavy rail.
