An overview of transit planning, funding, and operations in the Atlanta region

ATLANTA – The Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority (ATL) recently released the fourth iteration of the Annual Report and Audit, highlighting data trends for Metro Atlanta Transit. This report serves as a robust analysis of transit service in the region and demonstrates the need for sustained investment in transit and how accessibility varies across the 13-county region. The publication dives into how the metro region is performing within a national context and examines how transit will need to adapt in an ever-changing post-pandemic world.

The ARA not only highlights the performance of the transit network across 11 operators but also evaluates how public transportation contributes to economic competitiveness by enhancing equity in access to jobs, services, and opportunities in the region.

Overall, the ARA:

  • Heightens the region’s understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of its transit network
  • Informs decision-making regarding investments in public transportation
  • Enhances transparency and holds the region accountable for effectively meeting people’s mobility needs

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.
