2020 ATL Regional Transit Plan

About the ARTP

Per state legislation, the ATL is required to develop and regularly update a regional transit plan, incorporating existing and future transit services, facilities, and projects in order to provide a coordinated region-wide approach and enhance connectivity for riders. The ATL Board adopted a framework for the ARTP, which evaluates transit projects by a set of specific, objective criteria. These criteria reflect the ATL’s commitment to the six governing principles previously adopted by the Board: Economic Development and Land Use, Environmental Sustainability, Equity, Innovation, Mobility and Access, and Return on Investment.

2020 ARTP

The ATL Board on December 3, 2020 adopted the 2020 ARTP, which was developed as a result of partnership with local governments, transit operators, CIDs, and other project sponsors who submitted information about proposed and planned transit projects that comprehensively address the region’s transit needs. The 245 submitted projects were evaluated against criteria reflecting the Board’s six guiding principles, and were categorized into State of Good Repair, Enhancement, or Expansion groups.

The ATL Board on April 7, 2022 adopted the 2020 ARTP Amendment #1 updating 58 projects submitted by Cobb County into the 2020 ATL Regional Transit Plan. Then, on December 6, 2023, the ATL Board adopted the Second Amendment to the 2020 ARTP, adding projects from 6 locally adopted plans that were previously not included in the ARTP.

A proposed amendment to the ARTP (2020 ARTP Amendment #3) is being considered for public comment.

Information about the projects included in the originally adopted 2020 ARTP can be found below, as well as downloadable versions of the entire plan.
