The management at MARTA has continued to destroy this rapid transit government program. Riders continue to abandon it as MARTA revenue losses escalate due to the poor management and crime caused by thugs on the trains. MARTA has proven to be another example of what not to do with the billions spent to prop up a failed government system. Mayor Mohammad doesn't have any answers for this or the cheating in his Atlanta school system. Soon the mire will be full of his failures.

Ga Power needs to buy MARTA back, and rename it "The Atlanta Transit Company"!
It worked very well for decades.
Just my two cents worth.
Only if MARTA was auctioned off based upon the income it generates. The government has spent so much on MARTA it would be difficult for a company to buy it at the price they would demand. My Southern Co. stock would probably suffer if GA Power paid the value the MARTA management demanded.

Personally, I think Ga Power made a big mistake in selling their system to start with!
BUSINESSES ARE IN BUSINESS TO MAKE A PROFIT, NOT TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO PEOPLE THAT WANTS EVERYTHING FREE!
Think about it, we got rid of the "Trackless Trolleys", but now it would be a blessing now to have trolleys that didn't pollute!
We seem to be going BassAckwards!
You are spot on with your assessment about a private enterprise system which delivered people to their doorsteps pollution free. We now have a government program in which MARTA'S management and crime are causing its predicted demise.
