A public hearing for MARTA's proposal will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday Sept. 26 at Alpharetta City Hall.

MARTA Eyes North Fulton Expansion
MARTA is exploring the possibility of expanding its footprint in north Fulton County.

The public transit system is looking at possibly providing buses or train service on a 12-mile stretch of Georgia 400 between Dunwoody and Alpharetta, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

MARTA has filed a notice with the Federal Transportation Administration to study the probability, and a public hearing has been set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday Sept. 26 at Alpharetta City Hall.

The proposal could range from providing bus rapid transit service, extending the line from the North Springs station to Windward parkway.

That would involve adding stations at locations such as Northridge, Holcomb Bridge, Mansell Road, North Point Mall, Old Milton and Windward Parkways, according to the AJC.

Tell us: would you support extending MARTA's service in North Fulton County?
