More People Using Marta

A report by the Georgia Association of Railroad Passengers states that Georgians are using public transit.

At least, in Atlanta.

When the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority closed its books on fiscal 2007, it was found that overall MARTA ridership was up 6.6 percent for the year and MARTA rail ridership was up even more dramatically at 12.2 percent with 77.7 million boardings.

MARTA recorded a budget surplus for the second year in a row.
