A sales tax increase will help fund MARTA expansion projects.

MARTA wants public opinion about the proposed transit plans for the city and will host six station pop-ups to allow residents to provide their input.

In November of 2016, the City of Atlanta residents passed historic legislation that would provide MARTA with approximately $2.6 billion (in 2016 dollars) over the next 40 years. The additional funding will allow the agency to embark on expansion and transit enhancements, including expanded bus routes, and increased bus frequency services, including later service on the weekends.

The station pop-ups will be held at these locations:

Hamilton Holmes Station (Community Bus)
70 Hamilton E. Holmes Dr.
Atlanta, Ga. 30311
Feb. 21, 3 p.m.-7 p.m.
