The Clifton Corridor Transit Initiative is MARTA’s proposed new high-capacity transit line that would provide a connection between two existing heavy rail lines through a major employment and institutional corridor in the Atlanta region. Key activity
centers in the corridor are the Centers for Disease Control, Emory University, Emory University Hospital, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta - Egleston, Lindbergh Center, and Atlanta VA Medical Center.
A Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) for the project was previously adopted by the MARTA Board of Directors in 2018. However, due to changing conditions in the corridor and new funding and technology opportunities, MARTA Leadership is performing a multi-stage Alternatives Analysis with public engagement to
evaluate several new project alternatives. The goal is to identify an LPA that is based on maximizing community and stakeholder support, minimizing environmental and community impacts, increasing the potential for federal funding, and supporting community needs and the project purpose as listed
- Frequent and reliable high-capacity transit is needed to serve the Clifton Corridor, a major regional population and employment center
- Better transit access and connectivity within the corridor
- Improved Access to the MARTA Rail System
