MARTA Open House on May 21

From MARTA:

Greetings Campbellton Community Investment Corridor Stakeholder, 

Thank you for your continued interest in transit expansion as part of the Campbellton Community Investment Corridor – A Main Street for Southwest Atlanta. MARTA would like to provide more information and gain feedback on the high-capacity transit options and other supporting features that has been prepared for bringing improved travel, accessibility, and amenities to southwest Atlanta.  MARTA has also identified a proposed preferred plan, which is tentatively scheduled for a final decision in summer 2022—your input will help inform that final decision.

The Campbellton Corridor, which links the Greenbriar Mall area to the Oakland City MARTA Station, is home to established neighborhoods and businesses, and is currently served by one of MARTA's busiest bus routes – Route 83 Campbellton Road. This historic investment will greatly enhance the service area and transform how residents travel and supporting the community's growth and development for years to come, while improving the community for those who already live and work there.

We hope to see you at the upcoming Open House! Please email publichearinginfo@itsmarta.com or contact MARTA's Customer Call Center at 404-848-5000 with additional questions.
