The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid

in the 1960s completed the vision of
providing multimodal accessibility. This
session will examine the past, present
and future of transportation in Georgia,
detail the events that have encouraged
the state to reexamine the value of public transportation from urban and rural
perspectives and explore MARTA's role
in this effort.
