PLAN B Supporters say 1 percent sales tax in Clayton County could raise nearly $50 million each year for bus routes, future rail It seemed that Clayton County's best chance of seeing bus service return ended when voters overwhelmingly rejected the regional transportation tax.

If a bus service was feasible for Clayton Co. a private company would be Clayton Co.'s best bet. MARTA, has gobbled up billions and still is not economically successful. Clayton Co has problems even operating its own government because of crooked politicians.

We do not want the problems that Marta or any other bus service would bring into our neighborhoods. Thats why a bus service has never survived in Clayton County.

Both comments before mine were terrible. MARTA is needed in Clayton and almost 70% think so. I can't wait until they get a binding vote in November of 2014. Hope you are moved by then.

Thats why the TSPLOST Passed with overwhelming numbers in Clayton County right....We got rid of that and your boy that was pushing it.... Better luck next time.

So much for your 70% statement. Unless that was 70% of you jobless, welfare, food stamp crowd.

MARTA has gotten so ridden with crime it now is placing cameras in all of its buses. MARTA will only increase the problems Clayton Co now has with crime.

MARTA's slogan should be, "If you don't have crime, MARTA will be happy to bring it to you."

If you need public transportation develop it yourself, never depend on anything from Atlanta. MARTA will only bring Atlanta's problems to your doorsteps.
