We Deserve A City With Clean & Affordable
Public Transit

Public Transit Policy

If you take MARTA to your job, you’re probably already worn out by the time you clock in. And y’all know what the train stations are like on this side of town.

There have been positive steps, but there’s still more to do in order to get people to work on time without so much walking.

  1. Prioritizing affordable housing expansion around transit-oriented developments.

    What does this mean?

    We need to make sure that affordable housing is built or provided near easily accessible locations of public transportation.

  2. Pass a resolution that supports providing shelters and improved amenities at all bus stops.
  3. Pass a new TSPLOST (Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) which focuses spending on public transit projects including, but not limited to, heavy rail, light rail, and busway/bus rapid transit (BRT).
  4. Ensure that communities whose roads and sidewalks have long been neglected receive their due investment as quickly as possible.
  5. Repair and improve pedestrian infrastructure including sidewalks and crosswalks.
  6. Create more “complete streets,” which limit or eliminate cars on certain high pedestrian density roads to help bring communities together.
  7. Expand bike and micro-mobility lanes so that people can safely ride their bikes all the way from West Atlanta to Stone Mountain.
