The time to build rail on the BeltLine is NOW
BeltLine Rail Now is a grass roots citizen action group formed to advocate for transit on the Atlanta BeltLine. Begun in 2003 as a transit-oriented project, still has no transit component. In 2016, the citizens of Atlanta voted for a half-penny sales tax expected to raise $2.5 billion dollars for investment in rapid transportation expansion. As MARTA and the City of Atlanta are working to prioritize projects competing for that half-penny sales tax, we have developed the following guiding principles which we feel should be at the heart of those decisions. These principles have guided our advocacy.
Create a cohesive system using multiple modes of transportation within the city of Atlanta
Increase mobility to jobs, education, healthcare, parks, recreation, groceries, arts, restaurants, and stores
Enhance commute predictability with dedicated lanes
Align transit development with Atlanta City Design designated growth corridors
Prioritize projects with equitability, livability, and sustainability requirements
Partner with organizations who are working to ensure a equitable, livable and sustainable community

The Atlanta BeltLine—one of the largest economic drivers in Atlanta—was begun in 2003 as a transit-oriented project, but so far it has no transit component. Recently, there have been discussions of further delaying, altering, or even forgoing the transit portion of the Atlanta BeltLine.
