Senate endorses unified website for metro Atlanta transit

The Georgia Senate passed a measure Thursday urging metro Atlanta’s four separate transit providers to create a unified website.

Senate Resolution 735 was sponsored by Sen. Brandon Beach, R-Alpharetta. Beach considers it a baby step toward his desire to eventually consolidate Cobb County Transit, Gwinnett County Transit, MARTA and the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority under a single governing authority rebranded as "The ATL" (The Atlanta Transit Line).

The website, which will be named www.GoATLtransit.com, is expected to be online by July 1. The measure passed unanimously.
