"MARTA unveiled the results of an online survey that asked Atlantans—and some metro Atlantans—how they’d like to see More MARTA sales tax funds divvied up," reports Sean Keenan.

According to Keenan, the survey results show support for three projects: 1) a streetcar "on a northeast arc of the Beltline;" 2) another streetcar for the southwest side of the beltline; and 3) the so-called Clifton Corridor light rail project, which would connect MARTA’s Lindbergh Station to Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The survey has stirred up both controversy and support, as detailed in the article.
