Georgians for Passenger Rail represents community and business leaders statewide who believe that a fully developed passenger rail system is critical to keep Georgia competitive.
The Georgia Commuter Rail from Atlanta to Griffin – the first phase of a 103-mile line from Atlanta to Macon – is the quickest, most economical option for new rail transit in Georgia. The proposed line connects every existing transit system in the region, as well as planned statewide connections. Because land is plentiful and inexpensive south of I-20, Atlanta’s growth engine can be re-started in this corridor, and once the funding is secured, the entire line could be complete in less than five years.
It is the most intelligent first step to helping solve the state’s transportation, growth and economic development challenges.
