Americans for Transit joined the Almagamated Transit Union Local 732, Georgia Standup and The Sierra Club at a rally in support of MARTA transit service in Clayton County.
Clayton County commissioners Jeffrey Turner believes this is a move that could turn the county around.
"The unemployment rate in Clayton County is 9.4 percent, one of the highest in the state. Unacceptable. You look at economic development and the opportunities transit will bring us. I would say look at those, look at the options, and see that transit is a viable, positive thing for Clayton County."
If the measure passes, limited bus service would head into the county in March 2015, with full bus service following in phases.
