Reed predicts regional transit effort in 2015

External News Details

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed predicts another run at a regional transit effort sometime next year, saying leaders shouldn’t be discouraged by the 2012 failed T-SPLOST referendum. Reed said Atlanta is thriving with an influx of millennials and baby boomers, adding that businesses are following the migration into the heart of the city. He anticipates this growth will lead to what he called mega-regions. He says, “When we look at the country, we’ll be looking at which regions dominate, and how those regions perform, and that’s going to be driven by cities."
