$100M in additional funding makes way for Bus Rapid Transit on GA 400

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Governor Deal announces SR 400 transit project

Governor Nathan Deal recently announced $100M in additional funding toward a major transit project. The funding—sourced as General Obligation bonds—will expand the scope of the SR 400 Express Lanes project, a $1.8 billion effort to widen and ease congestion along the 16-mile stretch of highway that serves just over 210,000 drivers daily. The funds will add Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) infrastructure on GA 400 to the project scope, accommodate the growing transit needs along the GA 400 corridor.

“This investment in BRT infrastructure marks the first time that the state, Fulton County and MARTA have partnered together to improve our mass transit system,” said Deal. “With this announcement, we are introducing collaborative solutions for both transportation and transit, which is exactly what the ATL and Georgia’s commitment to improving mobility are all about.”
