  1. The map in the MANA survey listing all the proposed annexations reads:

    “Atlanta Annex.”
    “Avondale Annex.”
    “Decatur’s Unreasonable Annexation”
    “Lavista Hills Annex.”

  2. Combining Megabus, Greyhound, and a bunch of MARTA bus routes is hardly the demand for a Grand Passenger terminal. And bus riders want the buses right next to the station …

    Such a project really needs buy-in from Amtrak to move the train station, and as-yet-to-exist commitments for broader or more engaged transit. Otherwise we just have a bigger bus station.

    1. MARTA, Mega and Greyhound are not the issue. Downtown is choking on commuter buses – Cobb, Gwinnett, GRTA, etc – and those fleets keep growing. Don’t mention commuter rail though – that’s some sort of communist plot to ruin America.

      1. ” Downtown is choking on commuter buses” — The present situation is absolutely untenable. The volume of buses is ridiculous and the drivers are completely inept. A FedEx driver was killed by one last year. I was almost squished myself a few months ago.

        If the outer burbs continue to refuse mass transit, then the City needs to make it painfully expensive for them to do what they’re doing now.

    2. Amtrak is not interested in any downtown location because it would add at least 30 or 45 minutes to the current schedule.
