Live, work, play and use transit
The Master Plan will focus on creating an environment where transit is a seamless part of living, working and playing in DeKalb County. By creating a robust network of complementary modes that include different types of transit solutions, the plan will improve residents’ quality of life and businesses’ bottom lines.
Ensure that the transit vision is affordable and effective
Create an environment to listen, educate, and collaborate with residents, local businesses, cities, and DeKalb County, together we can develop a prioritized list of well-defined, realistic, and feasible transit improvements to guide us for the next few years and beyond.
Make sure thriving and emerging areas have transit service
By defining fiscally sensible solutions, the Master Plan will bolster economic development activities in currently prosperous areas and encourage investment in those areas identified for future growth so that all areas of the County will benefit from future transit improvements.
Make sure transit is available for everyone
Provide mobility options for all DeKalb County residents. The recommendations will balance the needs of discretionary riders who could choose to commute via private automobile instead of transit with the needs of more transit-dependent riders such as seniors, individuals with low incomes, underserved residents, persons with disabilities, and youth.
