Atlanta, GA The Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority (ATL) announces that it will hold elections for five of the Board’s 16 seats on March 8 and 9, 2023. Elections for Districts 8 and 10 will take place on Wednesday, March 8, 2023. Elections for Districts 2, 4 and 6 will take place on Thursday, March 9, 2023. All Elections will take place at the Georgia State Capitol, 206 Washington Street, Atlanta, GA 30334 in Room 341.

The ATL is governed by a 16-member board — 10 of the 16 members represent 10 different “transit districts” that intentionally cross county boundaries. Caucuses comprised of local elected officials and State legislators representing each transit district meet to elect their respective transit district’s board member. Per state law, individuals elected to serve on the ATL board must be a resident of their district who possess significant experience or expertise in a field that would be beneficial to the accomplishment of the function and purpose of the organization. Here is a link to the Atlanta Region Transit Districts.  For more information on ATL Board elections, please visit Elections dates and locations are posted on the ATL website and are open to the public.

About the Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority

The ATL was created by the Georgia General Assembly during the 2018 legislative session to provide coordinated transit planning and funding for the metro Atlanta region. The ATL is responsible for developing the ATL Regional Transit Plan, as well as identifying and prioritizing the projects and initiatives required to develop region-wide transit. The ATL is also charged with creating a unified regional transit system brand. Effective July 1, 2020, the ATL was legislatively authorized to oversee the state’s Xpress regional commuter transit system and the Atlanta region’s vanpool system. The population of metro Atlanta is growing rapidly and projected to add an additional 2.5 million residents by 2040. The ATL is a critical step towards more efficient and effective transit and mobility in the region. For more information on Xpress and the ATL, visit and follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
