In a recent op-ed for the AJC, SCaRP alumna Amanda Rhein (MCRP '04), discusses new transit-oriented development projects in Chamblee and Brookhaven. "Once built, they will improve the transportation and quality-of-life experience for these communities." she says. "Situated on busy commercial and residential corridors, these transit-oriented developments (TODs) should improve vehicle flow and make it safer and more convenient to walk, bike and use public transit."

Rhein is the Senior Director of Transit Oriented Development and Real Estate at MARTA. Along with the projects in Brookhaven and Chamblee, she is leading MARTA TOD projects in Oakland City and other communities south of I-20.

"Where disconnected developments consumed time, taxed our infrastructure and reduced our quality of life, equitable TOD builds community, promotes inclusion and strengthens the fabric of the region," says Rhein. "With seven TOD projects under way and even more private-sector development near our transit stations, MARTA is helping to ignite a community-driven, 21st century approach to creating unique regional destinations in a growing metropolis."
