MARTA CEO Keith Parker says the much-maligned, service-limited transit agency is looking at rail and bus line expansions, especially in light of recent traffic hiccups.
In an interview with WSB’s Mark Winne, Parker said the agency is doing all it can to be more efficient across the board.
“For MARTA to go where it needs to, does it need to have additional lines and spurs off existing lines?” Winne asked Parker.
“Short answer is absolutely. The most legitimate complaint that people can make about the transit service is that we don’t go to all the places they need to go,” Parker said.
“Is MARTA working on a strategy to use the increased ridership from the I-85 bridge collapse as a springboard to expanding MARTA rail lines and service?” Winne asked.
“Yes,” Parker answered.
