Up for your consideration on the November 2 ballot is a non-binding referendum question asking whether Clayton county should become a full participant in MARTA by charging a sales tax in support of MARTA and the county’s public transportation needs.
As per the AJC, this has basically become a vote to gauge citizen interest about whether or not we should join MARTA. If we vote favorably, then a binding referendum vote could come eventually, but the Legislature would first have to revise the law in 2011.
So, has your opinion changed about the necessity of public transportation in Clayton county since C-Tran’s demise? And has anybody seen Quick Transit lately? Does it even still exist?
