What We Do

The ATL is planning and funding the forward motion of metro Atlanta.


Our goal is to transform the way our region gets around, whatever the mode. Here’s how we’re driving that mission forward:
Oversee the transit plan for our 13-county region.
Promote collaboration between current and future transit partners.
Partner with regional stakeholders to think long-term about mobility.


All federal and state transit funding for the region will be managed by the ATL. Our core responsibilities include:
Prioritize transit projects to maximize available funding for the region.
Work with county governments who choose to expand TSPLOST options.
Recommend to state leaders transit projects for bond funding.

Our Transit Partners

We are proud to collaborate with the transit authorities that millions of Atlantans rely on every day.
