On March 19, 2019, Gwinnettians will have the chance to vote on Gwinnett County’s transit referendum.  This referendum is to approve or reject the contract that Gwinnett County has worked out with MARTA to bring the mass transit system to the county.  The county has hosted numerous open houses all over the county to attempt to educate the public on their views on bringing mass transit to Gwinnett.

You can read more about the proposed plan from the county’s perspective by going to

    I spend 3 hours round trip average trying to get to and from work in Sandy Springs. I am also using the Peachpass lane. If I didn’t use that lane, it would be 4 hours of commuting. We must do something. I have worked at my job for 17 years. The commute has not always been this horrible. Also, if I want to go to events in Atlanta, I would rather take MARTA and not drive. All I can figure, the people who don’t want MARTA, must never leave the suburbs. I grew up in Dekalb County. I took MARTA to college at GA State University every day. It saved time and money and stress.

      If you vote yes you’ll only have to wait about 40 years to ride MARTA from North Gwinnett County Monica! 😃

      In this case, nothing is better than the disastrous expense that MARTA would bring. Why do you want to send our Gwinnett tax dollars to Atlanta to blow and waste?
