Number 91!!!

The only memorable 91 I can remember is Dennis Rodman when he was with the Bulls.  He was mostly memorable for the wrong reasons.  I think Atlanta is in the same category here.

The Brookings Institute recently released its study 'Missed Opportunity: Transit and Jobs in Metropolitan America.'  I wish I had better news for everyone but I don't.  Those of us up here in N.Fulton who would love to see better transit in our area know this all too well already.  The Atlanta region ranked 91st out of the top 100 metropolitan areas in the transit accessibility profile.  The most shameful statistic was that only 38% of metro residents live in a neighborhood that is 3/4 of a mile or less from a transit stop.  This compares to a national average of 69%.  

Our lack of redundancy in our transportation system coupled with our sprawled out living arrangement is threatening our quality of life and it could cause talent and business to look elsewhere.  At least we have one thing going for us... We'll all be able to read the billboards.
