Last week, I wrote about my frustration with long wait times on MARTA and talked with agency officials who explained the cost of adding more service. Today, I visit with a Georgia Tech engineering professor who is trying to cut down on the inconvenience of waiting by introducing technology that will keep riders informed on how long it will take before their bus or train reaches their stop/station. In our second column, a transit consultant comments on the Atlanta streetcar system’s wait times.
