Leaving for work earlier? Driving? Car pooling? Walking? Stranded?
MARTA service reductions went into effect Saturday, reports AJC staffer Ariel Hart.
MARTA cut 10 percent of bus service and 14 percent of rail service as it tried to address an estimated $109 million deficit, Hart writes.
What’s the fallout for you? Even if you don’t take MARTA, do you think traffic congestion will get noticeably worse?
Speaking of congestion, any good ideas in these tough financial times? It’s a long time between now and 2012, when a regional sales tax for transportation projects MIGHT get passed.
Also, Hart is working on a story about people’s observations of how MARTA’s cuts worked Monday. If you’d like to comment for her article, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
