Following last year’s ¾-cent TSPLOST effort in Fulton County, the mayors of the 14 cities outside of Atlanta and the Fulton County Commission affirmed that a plan was needed to determine potential expansion of transit services in Fulton County. The mayors and county approached the Atlanta Regional Commission to help fund and manage the study in collaboration with MARTA, Fulton County, and the 14 participating cities.

The Fulton County Transit Master Plan will include a review of each city’s community and economic development strategies, an analysis of existing transit services and needs, and the development of a financial model to determine the potential for expanded transit services within Fulton County.
