The question of mass transit is one which plagues all cities, especially Atlanta. My concern with urban transportation has involved me with legislation since my arrival in Congress. In 1964, after months of work, my committee on Banking and Currency reported out and pressed for passage of the first major rapid transit bill in this country. The act passed the Congress; and I am pleased to report that under it, Atlanta has received almost $300,000 in Federal Aid. Atlanta demands a rapid transit system to unify a growing city. The metropolitan center must grow:into a cohesive unit with -organized means of transportation. Currently, the Congress is considering the Urban Mass Transportation Act of 1966. The bill was reported out of my committee and passed the House on August 16th. The bill included an amendment which I offered for grants for technical study. Under this section of the bill, grants are made available to states and local public bodies and agencies: for planning, engineering, and designing of urban mass trans- portation projects, Studies pertaining to feasibility of projects, preparation of surveys and engineering specifications, and other pre-construction activities fall under this section. The version of the bill which passed the House kept my amendment intact, I am pleased with the progress which has been made in this area and shall continue to do all that I can to promote the advancement of interest and action in the field of rapid August 19, 1966 Page Two trensit. If you have any questions or comments in this area, please do not hesitate to call on me.

CANADIAN RAPID TRANSIT PLEASES DEKALB VISITORS Six prominent DeKalb visitors returned from a recent trip to Toronto and Montreal to inspect those cities’ rapid transit operations, and reported that what they saw was “most im- pressive,” “fantastic,” “first class,’ and ‘“‘magnificent.”. They concluded that “we should proceed as rapidly as we possibly can” in developing a rapid transit system for Metropolitan Atlanta. Those in the group were Brince H. Manning, Chairman, DeKalb County Board of Commissioners; William C. Painter, Mayor Pro-Tem, City of Decatur; William H. Breen, Architect and member of the Decatur City Commission; Tom McCord, President of Tom McCord Construction Company and Chair- man of Decatur Planning Commission; John H. Ingram, Presi- dent C & S Emory Bank and Chairman of Decatur/DeKalb Rapid Transit Committee; and Aubrey C. Couch, Executive Vice President, Decatur/DeKalb Development Association. The six members of the group discussed their impressions and evaluations of the two systems at a news conference held in the DeKalb Commission chamber on February 9. Manning observed that “we came away from Toronto and Montreal with different impressions from those we had gotten from just reading literature. Certainly we ought to get on to DeKalb group in Montreal Station. Left to right, William FR. Breen, Tom McCord, John H. Ingram, William C.

We have to have a totally integrated system with automobiles, buses, and possibly even trackless trolleys, as well as rail transit. “I think the thing we here in this area have overlooked so much in the past is the impact that this will have not only on land values but also on the development that will come and the terrific increase in the tax digest which will arise from this development. We saw plans that could fit into almost any area that we have in DeKalb County or the City of Decatur or the whole metropolitan area of Atlanta, of development which has resulted from rapid transit.” “Certainly we ought to move forward with the program if we are going to have it: and if we don’t move forward, we will all regret it in years to come.” Breen, an architect, was unequivocal in his enthusiasm for the speed of the system and for the design of the stations in Montreal. He stated, “The most summarizing thing you could say about the whole trip was that I can come back now and say that ‘rapid transit works — I have seen it.’” “The system is fantastic,” he said. “A system that allowed me to get on at one end of the line in Montreal, cover 15 stops FEB.-MARCH 1968 METROPOLITAN ATLANTA RAPID TRANSIT AUTHORITY 808 GLENN BLOG.+120 MARIETTA ST., N.W.

Staton in 13 miles, let everyone get on and off who wished, and have spent no more than 15 minutes, is really moving people.” “The thing that I saw as an architect which was most im- pressive was the definition of this thing ‘corridor impact.’ I’ve heard this thing discussed, and seen it in papers, graphs, and charts, but in Montreal I saw it all in flesh and blood and in architecture. I certainly want to compliment the architects who handled the situation in Montreal. “The extensive development around rapid transit stations in Toronto and Montreal indicated to the group what might be accomplished in the Metropolitan Atlanta Area, with good planning before and during rapid transit development.” McCord stated, “What impressed me was that rapid transit made the backbone of the future development regarding build- ing and other developments. In the city of Decatur’s planning, we have just been through working over our documents again and we are real concerned that property values will not only stay where they are, but will continue to go up. As you know, we have had urban renewal and this has been a great boon. We now have several high-rise buildings here including the new county courthouse building. We would like to think that we could help the people who own property in Decatur to con- tinue to have valuable property. If rapid transit would make the land values continue to go up near the stations, then we would like to be involved where the stations would be and to help plan for the future. We are not talking about a one or two- year plan, we are talking about a fifteen or twenty-year plan.” Painter agreed with McCord’s observation about develop- ment in Toronto and related that to the future of Decatur. “The city of Decatur will be in a very critical spot in this whole metropolitan area transit. We feel that rapid transit in the city of Decatur will be an exciting and meaningful development for the entire citizenry. It will not only mean a mode for mov- ing back and forth in the downtown area of Atlanta, but will also be the backbone for the development that you have just heard about. The residential development will be more signifi- cant to Decatur because we have always been an area where people like to live. High-rise developments will be available. We saw there in Montreal and Toronto many high-rise apart- ments, and good rentals can be obtained in these because of the proximity to rapid transit. We feel that what we saw there can be related to Decatur in a very, very meaningful way, and we feel that our citizens will support it.” Ingram was particularly impressed with the speed with which the Montreal system was developed and the speed with which the system moves large numbers of people. “Montreal had talked about rapid transit for some fifty years but when the decision was finally made to act, they accomplished what they now have in a short period of time of about five years, “We were impressed with the speed with which they moved 350,000 people each day in the city of Montreal and moved them in quiet and in comfort and with efficiency. “Each of these cars will carry about 160 people and they will run about 10 cars to a train, so about 1,500 people can ride on one train. The trains are spaced something like two or three minutes apart, so you can visualize how fast you can move people into Atlanta, or out to Decatur, or out into De- Kalb County. “We found out that the public attitude about rapid transit had changed quite a bit. People in that area feel that it is no longer to their advantage to drive automobiles to work. They know now that they can ride the rapid transit system, have no parking problem, and arrive at work much more quickly. It is certainly easier than the way they were able to do this before.” “The cost of the system was certainly large; one car for example, will cost an average of about $123,000 and this was five or six years ago. We are talking in the Atlanta area about some 52 miles of track. The last figure I recall was in excess of some four hundred million dollars, and this keeps going up every year. We feel in the interest of Atlanta and Decatur and this great area we all live in, that we have got to translate this talk and these discussions into action as soon as possible.” Couch, too, concluded that after visiting the Montreal sys- tem, “We cannot afford not to build a system in Atlanta, and speed is of the essence. We rode the system in Montreal as the average person would ride it. We stayed in the Hotel Cham- plain in Montreal, rode one floor down on the elevator and were in the rapid transit system at that point. We paid a quarter, and, as far as we know, you could ride all day long for the price.” “The opportunity is so great and is so staggering that I don’t think anybody can really understand what an opportun- ee I 6“ Se ity this area has. I have seen METRO in Paris and I have seen the subway in New York and I must confess, the subway in New York did not impress me. But what I saw in Montreal, and to a larger degree in Toronto, was so different that I came away with the same feeling that Mr. Breen mentioned — rapid transit works.” “They have done magnificently,” Couch emphasized, ‘and if they can do it in Montreal and Toronto, we can do it here in Atlanta and we must with the greatest speed possible.” Manning agreed with McCord that, “the longer we wait, the more it is going to cost. This entire project will have to be submitted to the people and we should move forward with the program.” Manning concluded, “Certainly we should move forward with the program if we are going to have it, and, if not, we are going to regret it in years to come.” The inspection tour February 1-3 was arranged and spon- sored by the Decatur/DeKalb Development Association; trans- portation was by private plane owned and piloted by Tom McCord. Breen said, “There is one thing I would like to say. This general conversation has related to Metropolitan Atlanta, De- catur and DeKalb County and the number of stations and ex- tensions of the routes. If there are any interested persons in counties which are not in favor of rapid transit, I would like to recommend to these persons and to persons in other parts of the State that they give their attention to two things: “First, I recommend to any one that before they really be- come set against rapid transit that they make an effort to take a trip to Toronto and Montreal. After our trip, we are en- thusiastic about rapid transit and see that there is a real need for it, “Second, rapid transit adds a facility or capability to a city which in our case would generate new economy throughout the whole State. This is something that would lift Atlanta up out of a questionable area of whether it is indeed a great city or not quite great. I think rapid transit would help make the whole Metropolitan Atlanta area and all of its environment including DeKalb County and DeKalb municipalities part of a great area of high density habitation. This could not help but affect economy of our State. If I were in Valdosta, Thomas- ton, or some other part of Georgia, I would be in favor of rapid transit.” “We saw it, we rode it, we like it!” William Painter (1) with Ingram afd Breen; and, across the aisle, McCord with DeKalb Commission Chair- man Brince H. Manning (r), as they rode the Montreal rapid transit trains, RAPID TRANSIT EXHIBIT WINS FIRST PLACE AWARD An exhibit on rapid transit won a blue ribbon for four Chamblee High School students at the Science Fair in DeKalb County in February. The exhibit, titled “Rapid Transit for Atlanta,” used plaster of paris, wood, plastic, toys, parts of a train set and other materials to show the basic layout of the rapid transit system now being developed. The “mushroom- shaped” objects in the picture above are signs depicting station locations and the time/distance from Transit Center. The “Blue Ribbon” in the upper left corner of the display indicates a First Place award. The display was developed and built by Carol Pitts, Dianne Coffee, Judy David and Barbara Wilson, all ninth-grade stu- dents at Chamblee High School. Ken Moore, World Geography DeKalb County School Superintendent Jim Cherry listens in- tently as Chamblee student Carol Pitts explains the display she and three other students built, depicting rapid transit plans for Metropolitan Atlanta. teacher at Chamblee, was the supervising teacher for the project. The project took approximately 60 “girl-hours” to complete, and won a “First Place — Blue Ribbon” in the DeKalb com- petition. A total of more than 600 projects was entered in the Science Fair. DeKalb School officials say the fair provides “an opportunity for students to develop research skills and engage in individual and in-depth studies as they learn to distinguish between fact and opinion while exploring a more exciting ap- proach to learning.” MART Answers The following questions were asked by newsmen and were answered by members of the DeKalb group which recently toured rapid transit systems in Toronto and Montreal. QUESTION — Did you get any feeling from the people there as to whether they were glad to have rapid transit and depended on it or whether they wished it had never been built? BRINCE MANNING — I personally did not talk to any public officials or to anyone connected with rapid transit. We went to get the feelings of the average person in these two great cities and the opinions of business people who have their places of business around rapid transit and also the attitudes of those who live around rapid transit. I did not get the im- pression in either city that the public was against it. Two or three people did say that there was opposition to it in the be- ginning but they felt as a result of the completed system, that most of the people are in favor of it. QUESTION — How well do you feel the new systems were integrated with existing neighborhoods as well as with the new development that took place after the stations were built? WILLIAM BREEN — In the neighborhoods, the stations were largely underground as far as size and volume were con- cerned. Portions of the neighborhood stations which actually occupied ground and space above ground was very small. You could have had two or three of them around our court square, for instance, without disrupting any of our present operations. People walk to the stations. The only exception was where the automobiles and buses came to the stations; there they have drive-in stations which allow rapid transit riders to get to their cars or to buses which feed out into the neighborhoods. QUESTION — You mentioned the possibility of expanding the system in DeKalb County with more stations and longer lines. Do you have any specific idea as to what and where? MANNING — Well, the initial line in DeKalb County is to come out along the Georgia Railroad, College Avenue and DeKalb Avenue through Decatur, on out past Sams Crossing to Avondale. It is our thinking that because of the traffic pat- tern set up by the Perimeter Highway that the initial line should be extended beyond the Perimeter Highway. The reason for this is the limited crossings of the perimeter, not only for private automobiles but also for bus transportation. QUESTION — You also want more stations along the line than are now in the planning? MANNING — Y¥es, sir: I believe in Toronto the stations are spaced about a mile and a quarter apart. You can see the development at each station, and I think if we have more sta- tions, there will be a greater impact on every area in DeKalb County as well as in other counties in the Metropolitan area. I would like to say this — there has been a lot of talk about rapid transit as something which is just for moving people downtown. The two cities we saw defaults this theory. There is much movement out to the areas, shopping centers, and office buildings that have been developed as a result of rapid transit. I would say that people are going out to these more than they are going downtown. I think this would be true in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area and this suits me fine. The more people we can move out here to shop, to live, to invest their money in real estate development, the better off we will be. MART ActTIon At its regular meeting January 15, 1968, the MARTA board of directors re-elected Richard H. Rich as Chairman and Roy Blount as Vice Chairman. The Board was advised that the following directors had been re-appointed to new terms: from Atlanta, L. D, Milton to a term expiring December 31, 1971; from DeKalb County, Dr. Sanford Atwood to a term expir- ing December 31, 1971; from DeKalb County, Roy Blount to a term expiring December 31, 1969; and from Gwinnett County, K. A. MeMillon to a term expiring December 31, 1971. The Board agreed to participate in an accelerated program of the Atlanta Area Transportation Study. At its meeting in February, the Board of Directors au- thorized the General Manager to file an application with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for $166,666.00, to be matched by $83,334.00 of local funds for continuation of the work program in 1968. This program includes work elements on Preliminary Ownership Study ($49,000); Accounting and Financial Control System ($25,- 000); Architectural Studies ($32,000); Transit Center Tech- nical Studies ($99,000); Socio-Economic Benefit Analysis ($30,000); and Impact of Proposed System of Atlanta Transit System ($15,000). The Board also agreed on MARTA's share of the cost of the accelerated Atlanta Area Transportation Study: MARTA and the State Highway Department will each contribute $100,000 toward this work.

MARTA-ATS BUSES ARRIVE Ten of the most modern buses ever built, and the only buses of their kind anywhere, were delivered to eager Atlan- tans July 1, 1968. The arrival of these new buses was especially significant because it marked the first of many anticipated joint efforts between the Atlanta Transit System, who is leasing and operating the buses, and MARTA, which purchased the buses. The buses were officially welcomed in a brief ceremony by Richard H. Rich, MARTA Chairman; William P. Maynard, President of Atlanta Transit System; and C. J. Jacobs, President of Local #732, which represents the drivers. Mr. Maynard noted that “the buses would immediately be put into service, to serve riders on routes throughout the city, and give everyone the opportunity to enjoy and inspect the new vehicles in air-conditioned comfort.” The buses, which were built by General Motors, were pur- chased by MARTA under competitive bidding procedures, and will be leased to the Transit System over a period of ten years. Revenue to MARTA from the lease will pay both the principal and the interest. Mr. Rich outlined the reasons for the purchase. “It is es- sential to the development of rapid transit for Metropolitan: Atlanta that a balanced system of transit be developed, includ- ing fully coordinated bus transportation.” He noted that under the terms of the lease agreement, the Transit System will furnish MARTA with information as to patronage, routes and other information helpful to MARTA in its studies of a bus feeder system. “Through this rapid transit project,” Mr. Rich concluded, —_—_— a -_> — : “a BS oe MARTA Chairman Richard H, Rich, in driver's seat, hands keys to ATS President William P. Maynard. “MARTA can contribute immediately to relieve some of the transit pressure, and can meanwhile gather much valuable in- formation in regard to the coordination of such facilities in the future.” A prototype of the new vehicles, the first of its kind tested anywhere, has operated in Atlanta since last fall and greatly exceeded expectations in terms of performance and public ac- ceptance. Each bus is powered by a big, new 338 H.P., V-8 engine that replaces the standard 238 H.P., V-6 formerly standard in city buses. The greater size of this new engine makes it equal to the task of operating faster and more effi- ciently in all types of traffic conditions, while powering the air-conditioning system to deliver thermostatically controlled comfort. These unique new 47-passenger buses also feature the latest in appearance and comfort styling. New, super-soft foam seats of special design, are two inches wider than standard with higher seat backs to afford passengers greater comfort and leg room. Interiors are tastefully color-harmonized in a fresh, modern decor. Riding comfort has been increased by a more advanced suspension system and new super V-8 transmission that allows smooth shifts under full engine power and an overdrive feature which cuts-in at speeds over 40 m.p.h. Coupled with the new power plant, the vehicles are capable of highway speeds up to 65 m.p.h., with an increase in operating economy.: The buses which are now in service will be used on various routes throughout the entire system. The ten MARTA-owned, ATS-operated air-conditioned buses were placed into service immediately throughout the transit system. JUNE-JULY, 1968 5 MARTActTIoN At its May meeting, the MARTA Board of Directors agreed to purchase ten air-conditioned buses and lease them to the Atlanta Transit System. The money to buy the buses would be borrowed from a local bank, and the revenue from the lease would be sufficient to pay both principle and inter- est. (See story on Page 1.) The Board also agreed to perform additional studies on a Model Cities line for approximately $30,000.00 and on a Buckhead Alternate for approximately $9,500.00. The Board confirmed the appointment of Mr. Ed Gil- crease of Parsons Brinckerhoff-Tudor-Bechtel as MARTA representative to work with the Alan Voorhees firm in the Atlanta Area Transportation Study. At its June meeting, the Board was advised that the General Motors Corporation was the low bidder on the purchase of the ten air-conditioned buses, at $38,728.68 per bus. with delivery charges specified separately at $300.54 each. The Board, by resolution, accepted the General Motors Corporation bid. General Manager Henry L. Stuart recommended a num- ber of additional planning programs as a result of the recent series of public hearings. Stuart reported that the general sen- timent expressed at the 12 public hearings conducted in late April and in May was favorable toward the routes and sta- tion locations which had been proposed by the engineering consultants. Stuart stated that a number of recommendations had been made for modifications, extensions, and additions to the pro- posed routes. He recommended that MARTA “undertake a planning program similar in refinement to what is required under Section 701 of the Housing Act of 1954 to examine the possibilities of the following: 1. A line towards the Perry Homes area in Northwest Atlanta. 2. An extension of the West line to Fulton Industrial Boulevard. 3. An extension of the East Lime past 1-285. 4, A line towards South DeKalb County. This line needs only to be studied sufficiently at this time to identify potential corridors. There is no need as yet to per- form patronage studies.” Stuart’s proposal was adopted by the Board. Stuart also summarized the public response at the 12 public hearings. The following is a brief account of Stuart's report. EAST POINT, April 29. East Point and College Park speakers were outspoken in their support of the project and the way in which we are developing our program. They were delighted that the first hearing was held in their areas. Only one person spoke in opposition, and he objected to the cost and to taking people out of East Point, LENOX, April 30. Leading citizens spoke strongly for the project. The Buckhead Alternate excited no interest at the hearing, but since then we have learned of considerable feeling in opposition to this alternate. When work on this subject progresses sufficiently. we should go back for another formal hearing. DOWNTOWN, May 2. We received strong endorsement from all the business groups such as the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, Central Atlanta Progress, Inc., Atlanta Jaycees. and from the Mayor's office. WEST END, May 6. West End business. civic and church groups gave us a strong endorsement. They did not place into the record their earlier request for a different station site. We are continuing to work with them on this matter. CLAYTON COUNTY, May 9 (Forest Park). We received 100 per cent support from the Clayton County Commissioners and gratifying support from business and other leaders. One man appeared to protest cost estimates which were not at issue at the hearing, and to abject to the continuance of the Clayton County vacancy on the MARTA Board. DECATUR, May 13. We received strong support from business and political leaders, but they made it very clear that more lines are needed to serve DeKalb County. Strong support was given to the Decatur Alternate, which would place the station closer to the Courthouse Square. One speaker expressed concern about costs. DORAVILLE, May 15. This hearing was also productive in that local speakers gave us advice about the schedule of development they expect. In one word, “quicker.” They rec- ognize that Doraville/Chamblee is a long way out, but a prolonged development schedule is not acceptable. A stated reason for the impatience of North DeKalb County residents is the crowded condition of the Northeast Expressway. WEST SIDE, May 16. A very productive hearing in that communications were established with a substantial part of the Negro community. We received a list of requests from the Atlanta Summit Leadership Conference, and we were able to respond to them positively. CANDLER PARK, May 20. We used a different com- munications pregram to generate attendance. and learned that the method used for the West Side hearing was more effective. Statements made most often by speakers related to requests for assurances about no job discrimination, AME ZION CHURCH, May 22. Several speakers took exception to our arrangement for the West Lake Station. They place more importance on our use of vacant land than we do, and they do not place as much importance on street access as we do, Most speakers addressed themselves to ob- jections to our organization; specifically, the absence of Negro employees on the staff and the limited Negro repre- sentation on the Board. We explained this as best we could. SANDY SPRINGS, May 27. Speakers presented an un- derstanding that Sandy Springs is not a first priority, and they expressed quite clearly that they expect to be part of our project some day, SOUTH DEKALB, May 29. There was some expression of interest and need for a rapid transit line into South De- Kalb County where none is now shown. However, the pro- ponents of this South DeKalb Line also stated that they do not travel into Atlanta very often. METROPOLITAN ATLANTA RAPID TRANSIT AUTHORITY B8O8 GLENN BLOG,*120 MARIETTA ST., N.W.

It must be a place where every man can satisfy his highest aspira- tion. It must be an instrument to advance the hopes of all its citizens. That is what we want our cities to be. And that is what we have set out to make them. Lyndon B. Johnson The modern city by the volume and rapidity of the movements of its people and goods can in large part grow or atrophy depending on the efficacy of its transportation sys- tems. A transit system has to be more than vehicles and tracks. There are also social and political dimensions. A forward looking transportation system can inject new eco- nomic vitality into a failing and deteriorating isolated area. It can be the means of direct- ing and encouraging new and untapped areas of metropolitan growth. In short, it can give the city a new image for urban design. Robert C. Weaver Secretary U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development The Federal Government has a responsibility to make clear the positive potentials of well designed transit for meeting the needs of our urban people. There is a national need for a stronger concern with the urban design features in urban transportation development. For much of the future of the quality of urban life hinges upon transit development. Design components in public transit play an extremely important role — not only in shaping our cities—but in making them more attractive and stimu- lating places in which to live and work. Charles M. Haar Assistant Secretary for Metropolitan Development U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development The life blood of the city is carried through the arteries of public mass transportation. Indeed, public transportation can be the most important single force in shaping the development of the Nation’s metropolitan areas. We think it is exciting to be tackling such a huge and complex problem; for the goal we have in mind is a most important urban design goal—that of meeting the human needs of urban life. Leo J. Cusick Director, Urban Transportation Administration U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development program The 1968 Design Awards Program in Urban Transportation is initiated by the U.S. De- partment of Housing and Urban Develop- ment to recognize superior design in public transportation. Awards will be made for winning entries in two categories: systems or major portions of systems, and com- ponents such as stations, vehicles, and trackage. Judging will consider how design is related to comprehensive planning and the contribu- tion of the entry to the physical, economic, social, and aesthetic development of the metropolitan area, the central city and the neighborhood. Announced at the HUD-sponsored Design in Urban Transportation Conference on May 22, 1967, this program will stimulate awareness of the affirmative role of good design. It will encourage active exchange of new ideas and broader concepts in urban transit develop- ment. eligibility Public agencies which have received finan- cial assistance from HUD’s urban mass transportation programs are eligible to sub- mit one or more entries. The entry itself need not have received HUD assistance. Total systems or major segments thereof, and individual items (including rolling stock, stations, rights-of-way) may be entered. Eligible projects include those completed after World War Il, or planned by January 1, 1968. form and method of entry Mail entries to: ‘68 Design Awards Program in Urban Transportation Department of Housing and Urban Development 1626 K Street, N.W.

System impact on immediate environ- ment (right-of-way): Urban development patterns (contribu- tion to future community develop- ment, control of factors disruptive to neighborhood stability, preserva- tion of historic sites and open space, urban design considerations). User needs (attention to scheduling, travel time, accessibility, orienta- tion, comfort, safety). Comprehensive traffic flow (effect on congestion at collector stops, dis- tributor stops, along right-of-way; ease of transfer among modes). Efficiency (social, environmental, eco- nomic costs and benefits in meeting transportation needs). 2. System impact on total environment: Urban development patterns (strength- ening of business districts, promo- tion of group interaction, respon- siveness to changing area needs, urban design considerations). User needs (service for those without autos; access to hospitals, schools, employment centers, etc.). Comprehensive traffic flow (interfaces between transit, auto, etc.). Efficiency (social, environmental, eco- nomic costs and benefits in meeting transportation needs). item design 1. Rolling stock (buses, rail transit cars, eic.): Planning (inherent design features, attractive display of signs and in- formation, lighting, noise, ability to see outside, innovation in color and design of equipment), Safety (incidence of property damage, personal injury, fatal accident). Comfort and convenience (temperature and circulation, seat size and leg room, ease of boarding and alight- ing, provisions for handicapped). Economy and efficiency (present con- dition of equipment, freedom from breakdown, cost of operation and maintenance, flexibility — adjust- _ ment to peak and nonpeak periods). 2. Right-of-Way: Planning (inherent design features; signs; landscaping; compatability with adjacent development, includ- ing other rights-of-way). Safety. Economy and efficiency (cost of con- struction — use of materials, main- tenance, durability). 3. Stations: a. Building: Planning (inherent design features, aesthetic and functional consist- ency with adjacent development, access to other transportation modes). Safety (police protection, areas hid- den from view, adequate lighting). Comfort and convenience (cleanli- ness, stairs-escalator, capacity, seating, weather exposure, heat- ing, facilities for handicapped, attractive display of route and scheduling information, covered and heated walkways). Efficiency (construction, maintenance, durability). b. Site Area: Planning (inherent design features, landscaping, aesthetic and func- tional consistency with adjacent land use, accessibility from road- ways; separate access routes and facilities for feeder bus, park and ride, automobile drop-off, pedes- trian access). Convenience (sheltered waiting area, protected walkways leading to station). Safety. Efficiency (construction, maintenance, durability). jury and judging Entries will be judged on the basis of aes- thetic and functional design of the project with consideration given to both current and future impact. System Design will be evaluated in terms of impact on the imme- diate environment -and total. environment over a fifty year period. Item Design will be judged with particular reference to user and community benefits. The time frame for performance will be 10 years for bus, 30 years for rail transit car, 50 to 100 years for buildings and rights-of-way. A jury including distinguished persons in the fields of planning, architecture, engi- neering, sociology, and graphics will be ap- pointed to evaluate entries and recommend awards to the Secretary. Ralph J. Warburton, A.I.A., Associate A.I.P., Special Assistant to the Secretary for Urban Design, will serve as Professional Advisor. awards A limited number of Honor Awards will be given, and in addition several Merit Awards will be made.

This is brought a bout by severa l f a ctors: First: The boomi ng us e of the pers onal ca r has beg un to boomerang and is defeating its own ends . Ther e are not e no ugh h i ghways, exp ressway s t o handle the volume of cars want i ng t o us e them, bri ngru~g about monume n t a l traffic j a mbs , air polut i on , and parki ng problems , etc ther e fore t he ave rage commute r is n ow look ing f or a be t ter a nswe r t o his desire t o live out , ye t not have to pay s o heavily i n pr e cous time, frustration, and health. He i s asking if possibly there is 1 nt a bette r way. t~ the. fa~t t h ~t e ve r y expre sswa y worthy of the name takes so much of the city a wa y , that ecenomically it be comes more a nd more i mposibl e to consid e r. true . Third : I t i s tn most ci t ies , and ce r tinally is/i n Atlanta , that t he r i ght of way that t he railroad s have a r e very a dva ntageouslylocat ed to be st serve as r api d transit routes, and serve the vario us s e ctions of the city, and this without ca using the d isrupt i on or los s of a s i ngl e bit of t he existing city. --- _,- - -'2,--e-c-mra-:-"I'he GovBrnmerit isb;ginn-i ng t o - fa ~~- u; I , thus propos e t hat we look t o the railroads a gain , and see wha t they offer i f anyt hing. So: First, they move masses of people, bet t er than any other means, and have for a cent uar y. Having done t his, they have much that it takes, such as t ra i ned pers onell , management abil i ty, eonstr ucti on ability and equipment , opperati on, and mai ntenance moxy. Second: The r a ilroa ds started so far back that the cities were not here, but rather the citi es grew along the railroads. If these right of ways are now put to this new use vast portions of the city will not have to be sacrificed to acquireexpressway right of-way, and with stops suitably located, feeder bus lines can radiate out into the neighborhoods from these stops, over the existing streets, and not have to be routed~own town as now to congest the downtuwn streets as is now done. to Third: The railroads are inter-city, going on, and on beyond the limited range that M.. .lhR.T .A. could serve. This means that our outlying cities and towns become satelite cities, and open spaces become available for NEW CITIES, industrial complexes, and office parks, and by reaching out to cities like Gainesville, Athens, Monroe, Covington, Jonesboro, Griffin, Newnan, and Cartersvill~, it becomes a state responsibility, and the state can legitamly participate in its funding and contribute services of the highw y department, and other state agencies . This is needed to take care of grade separation, provide access roads to the stations, and parking at the stations, and other services and implementation acts. In return the successful opperation of this leapfrogging opperation will lessen the need for new wxpressways, thus reducing the expansion needs for expressways . �Page 2 . Fo urth: It has been shown that experience in handling trains as demonstrated over the years by the railroads, is a most valuable phase of railroading, and the existing, trained personell is a a most valuable asset that the railroads have to offer. Fifth: The management and technology of running a transportation system is incomprehensible to most, but is extremely important and NECESSARY. The existing trained technical and managerial resivor that the railroads already have is trully pricel ess . The know how J' -:.,'Yoc for cons truction,opperation, and upkeep of Facilities is truly hard to come by. The railroads have it already, ready. I d-0 not propose, nor do I recomend for a new Metropolitan System to take over the railroads right of way and install tracks, stations, rolling stock, etc., and organize and opperate a rapid transitsystem. I am proposing for the railroads to be· subsedized to the extent that their facili t ies can be updated, with new or s uppl ement tracK as needed modern trains or cars, computerized schedul ing and controlls, then under suitabl e controlls leave the opperation to the railroads own opi:*nation staff. I further propose that they be guaranteed a satisfactory earning on the investment, and opperation by an anual supplementary earning supplement, if rates cannot be set that will show the necessary earning s . This will be required becaused rapid transit will not attract the patronage if i t is ecenomically unattractive to the user, therefore a subsidy most likely will be necessary. I also propos0that the present city transit company opperate the feeder bus service with the existing and augemented equipment, and that the city transit and raiload fares be kept as low asnecessary to meet the competition of the personal vehicle, by subsedizing the earnings i f necessary. I propose that the capitol improvements needed be provid ed by Federal and Metro Bond grants, and by highway aide in the provision of g rade separations where necessary, and access roads t o the railro~d &tat~ons and paviug i.;he needed all day parking lots at the stations . . I suggest that funds to cover these subsedies might be raised in vavious ways, such as to have the Bureau of Public Roads permit an exit toll to be charged to leave the expressways between certain s e ctions. This will serve two purposes. F~rst it is to raise the needed subsidy and bond revenue funds , and· to also discourage use of the private cars to g et into the congested down town areas, and in turn encourage use of. the rapid transit, and city tra nsit. Also for the same reasons, req uire that a tax be imposed on all parking down town, hopefully believeling that both revenue that is needed, and that ecenomic deterant to use of the private vehicle would stimulate use of the transit facilities. Anothe r gainful development to the rail road opperation of the rapid trans i t, would be the planned dual airport for Atlanta. When the .t11wo airports are in opperation, the interchange of passengers will become a ma j or problem, and to throw this load onto the expressways will be intolerable. Yet that is about all that can be done, as he licopt e rs and short hop plan.~s are too r isky, a nd i mpract ical. But i f t her e are r aiload faci lities be tween the se two airpor t s, shut,tle · t r a i ns can handle the loads . As of now t her e is a possible r a il fa cil ity a va iable fo r t he pr e s ent airport, a nd i f t he new a i r port is l oca t ed s o that a few miles of t r ack from the nearby railroad i s possible then the railroad is the way to handle it by using s h uttl e trains f or passengers and baggag e . Eurthermore if t his second a i r port i s l oca ted nort h or east of At lan ta, a d owntown Central Air Termi nal can be created , a s t he State now control ls the air rights over the railroads, r i ght whe r e t he railroad tra ns it cent er would be. This area could become a lar geparking facility to handle the central terminal needs, and with a i rpassengers be i ng picked up from the down town terminal and hauled by train to the embarkation port, a reduction of the t e rminal f a cilities could be ma de at these points. to the beiliefi~f mf the public, the air lines and the communities. Also by this set up the railroads, being regional rapid transit facilities, could thus become feeders for the air lines from the outlying cities on the lines. 1 It seems that with all this to start with, a definate demand and effort should be made to endeavour to implement something that has so much merit. I �Page 3. Howe¥er , the way things are movi ng , this cannot be dallied with. Critical decisions must be made without any delay.-· Some grantt funds ~re even now avail able, and p ossibly by the end of the wi n ter large participation by the Federal Government will become available, that will be eagerly so ught by rival cities, and rival groups right here in our own city . Much has to be accomplished, as of now the railroads have no program to participate in this . They must be either sold or or compelled to participate. Our rival , grandiose MARTA scheme must · be r eplaced by this or this encorporated int o its picture. The Federal Government mblst be s old , however it s e ems ·that this will not be too hard, for much has recently been discussed in Washing ton to give t e railroads a subsidy break such as the airlines and expresswaw n ow are recieving . I have j ust been coaching , I want to have y ou get us a quarterba ck a nd a t eam of experts who can now take the ball and score. I am not t ry i ng to creat e a ny j ob or work f or my company .

Unless y ou hapven to be on t he w ay down." - THE GEORGIA ENGINEER 2 r March, 1969 ANON. 3 �TRANSIT NOW-ANOTHER LOOK by Norman Stambaugh B ack in 1952, I became interested and made some studies to show that t he railroads had a natural facility to start a Rapid Transit system for Atlanta, but I couldn't arouse much interest. The railroad said they didn't want any part of it, because of feather bedding and union domination they couldn't make it pay . . Then our expressway came along and it looked as though we at last had the answer. But our first expressway wasn't finished before it became apparent we had created a noth er monster that we could not seem to control. Yes, these expressways move a lot of vehicles, but at a slower, and slower, and more exasperating pace. To expand, these are g utting our cities, and soon there will be nothing left but expressways and parking lots, with the people and facilities they should serve moving away and leaving them to die if nothing succeeds · in solving the problem . It is not hard to see that mass movement of people, and doing away with much of the need for movement would do much to correct this, but mean,s for satisfactory mass movement and intelligent long range planning is not yet realistic. Why we are where we are, and as we are, is important. Some say Atlanta developed from cow paths-but this is not true. Atlanta did g row from paths or trails that t h e early inhabitants created and used. It was the conflux of such trave l as existed then, and still is the Conflux of todays t r ave l by rail - auto - truck - air - and foreseeably by water. Even when railroads were very new, they reac hed out from the ports and factories toward a conflux or junction, where East, South, West and North met, and exchanged their resources, and so Atlanta grew. Since it was primative, it g r ew a long these arteries, and so Atlanta today, and its outlying towns, are largely developed along the railroads, and this is tremendously important. This is why I am concerned. They didn't put the railroads thru Atlanta- At22 p RO POSED · R. E.Gl ON AL -R.A I L R..OA D · R.APID·TRANS IT TO· SEQVE_- AT LANT A· lanta developed a long the railroad. Thus railroads are here now-open, flowing arteries. To use them to their real capacity is mandatory. Why deface our city when it is not necessary-let's use what we h ave !

An a uto is a selfish thing-"! will ride it a lone, or my family will ride it, thus I will occupy the highway, and you be damned. If I want to go slow-I will. If I want to speed and jump lanes, I will, etc. etc. We cannot solve our transit needs by your's or my auto in a metropolitan environment. But if you could conveniently use your car to get to a place where you would be able to whisk, in minutes, near to where you want to go, your car would be a help. With your car and rapid transit together, a solution to our dilemma is found, for we will keep the autos off of our downtown streets, leaving surface buses, routed to radiate out from the transit stops more speedily and efficiently. Parking lots could become sites buildings, factories, and stores. Better congested city dwelling would not be essary, but people could move out to ellite towns instead. T-28!> To I-20 ] for still, necsat- . I now want to become specific. L ook at the black lines on the map? They are railroad right of w ays ! Note that these railroads do not end at Doraville, College Park, Decatur, or the Airport as doe;; the MARTA plan, but they go on to Buford, and Gainesville, Palmetto, or N ewnan, Jonesboro or Griffin , Decatur or Covington, Emory or Athens. This brings me to what I am really offering, or visualizing. Instead of a very expensive system, as proposed by MART A, going throug h already densely developed sections, I propose that the railroads be developed to handle t h e rapid transit, not just from Lenox or Decatur, or Hightower Road, (Continued on Pag e 2 7) THE GEORGIA ENGINEER LEGE.ND: RA IL ROAD~ - - - -...... -Sulli=Acf.B145: - - Su ~wAy bP~ c.!>S- o WAY z I" .,, , This sketch illustrates the suggestions made in Norman Stambaugh's article, " Rapid Transit Now-Another Look."

Why should the State pick up this but from farther out, as expansion needs tab? Because it will help the entire State. It will mean everything to the satellite call for. There are reasons why this is very good. cities. It will also mean that instead of the State having to build extra expressways, If no more is provided than MART A has the rapid transit will reduce the growing proposed, nothing more than a glut of high rise apartments will develop, and the chance load on t h e expressways and eliminate some for home ownership, on a decent plot of land new ones.

As requested by Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. on June 28, 1967, MARTA and its staff and consultants have reviewed the proposal made by the Atlanta Transit System for 11 RAPID BUSWAYS" in Atlanta. The proposal was given serious and objective consideration and study over a period of approximately five weeks. Contact was made with Atlanta Transit System personnel and additional material was obtained from them. MARTA reports three basic findings: 1. The costs to develop the busways were seriously underestimated. MARTA estimates that the costs would be three to four times the amount noted in the proposal. 2. Time schedules also were seriously underestimated. No busway could be made operational in less than 3½ years, the same time required for the East Line of rapid transit. The interim between completion of busways and completion of rail rapid transit would range from a minimum of one year to a maximum of three years. 3. The amount of busways coinciding with MARTA routes is no more than 50 percent, and quite likely would be no more than one third and require considerable expenditures which would never be recovered by MARTA. MARTA makes two recommendations : 1. Because of the high cost for very short term relief , _ implementati on of the "Rapid Busways 11 proposal should not be attempted . 2. If the public interest demands an e x perimental development of buswa y s , it is recommended that any expe r i mental busway be bui l t f i r st along MARTA ' s Ea s t - We s t Li n e . The attac hed r eport p r ovides deta il s f o r the above find ing s and recomme ndat i o ns ., - 1 - �CLOSING SUMMARY Based on MARTA's study and review of the " Rapid Busways" proposal , MARTA concludes that the implementation of the busways proposal as it now stands is not practicable e --The time required to complete a specific busways and rapid transit line (except where subway is concerned) is virtually the same. The " interim" between operational busways and operational rapid transit would be almos~ entirely consumed by the laying of tracks for rapid transit . --The total cost of busways is not $52 million as described in the proposal , but , according to MARTA engineers, more like $150 million. --While $150 million is indeed much less than the cost of rapid transit , busways so constructed would not do the job of relieving traffic as will be required for a permanent longrange solution for a city of 2 million people. - -Although there is a great differential in costs , it would be much more wasteful to spend $150 million for an inadequate interim system than to spend $350 million for permanent and eff i cient relief . MARTA ther efore : 1. Di sappr o v es of busways as a permanent solution and r ecommen ds against its i mplementation as an interim mea s u r e ; 2. Co n c l udes that the e x per imental route p r oposed b y the At l anta Tr a p s i t System as an interim soluti on would be a wa s te of p ub li c money ; 3.

Eleventh Highway Transportation Congress : Reports of committee re commendat i ons during t he Elevent h Highway Transport ation Congress in Washington, D. c., held in April, were made by members who attended. Rapid Transit: Charles Skinner, Chairman of the Legislative Committee, explained a resolupassed by the last Georgia General Assembly that proposed a constitutional amendment to allow the state to help finance rapid transit. The proposed amendment, to be voted upon in the next general election, declares public transportation of passengers for hire to be an essential governmental function. It limits the · state's participation to not more than 10% of the total cost. The resolution, as written, does not threaten gasoline tax funds, which by constitutional amendment must be used for highway purposes. �I ~- HUC-6-66-2 FEDERAL SAFETY STANDARDS Governor' s Safety Commit t ee I s Tes t imony.~ State Representativ-e W. M Bi ll) Williams ., Chairman of the Governor's Commit tee on Traffic Safety, repcr ·~ed en his commit tee's -t",estimony before a u. s. House Committee hearing on proposzd federal automobile safet.y legislation. 0 ( The committee hearing was told, Williams said, that a federal agency to lead the way for traffic safe t y is necessary for unifo~mity . How2ver, Williams added, Georgians do not want fo dGral con-::.rol; just federal l e adership. The federal legislators, Williams reported, were told that a cill submitted by Georgia Congressman James Mackay is superior to the administration measure. Williams added, however, that there are portions of the President's bill that the C~orgia panel agrees with. Industry's Position on Safety Bills: James Golden of Ford Motor Company, in Atlanta, predicted that compromise legislation would come out of u. s. Congressional proceedings on federal safety standards for automobiles allowing the states to participate in setting the standards. Golden said industry wants the states to utilize their know-how in the field of safety when standards are set and that federal authorities should supervise. Golden predicted, however, that t he Vehicle Equipment Safety Corrnnis s ion, which a lready has been setting standards, will not be utilized by t he fede r al gover nment. It is wrong to conclude that the s tates have done nothing in the field of auto safety, Golden said. Then he enmnerated many safety features now on automobiles tha t came about through states actions. It is also wrong to conclude that the industry has done nothing, Golden . said . Ther e would be many more deaths on the highways if industr y had not been attacking t he problem, he said. Other bus ine s s : Chairman Hube r t de clar ed that constr uction of per imeter r oads would be a good alternati ve to r apid t rans it . They would keep thr ough traffic off downtown s tretches, he s aid, and all ow l ocal t raffi c to f l ow mor e smoothly. He urged the conference t o cons ider three points f or f uture programs . They are (1) f i nish perimeter roads, ( 2) start pl anning mor e oute r perime te r r oads, and ( 3) plan f or additi onal traffic now on freeways, including overbuilding in downtown areas and extra lanes for other portions. The Atlanta Automobile Association was approved for membership by the Conference. �METROPOLITAN ATLANTA RAPID TRANSIT AUTHORI TY GLENN BUILDING • A TL ANT A , GEOR GI A 30303 OFFICERS : April 18, 1966 Richard H.

The question of mass transit is one which plagues all cities, especially Atlanta. My concern with urban transportation has involved me with legislation since my arrival in Congress. In 1964, after months of work, my committee on Banking and Currency reported out and pressed ior passage of the first major rapid transit bill in this country. The act passed the Congress: and I am pleased to report that under it, Atlanta has received almost $300,000 in Federal Aid. Atlanta demands a rapid transit system to unify a growing city. The metropolitan center must grow··into a cohesive unit with -organized means of transportation. Currently, the Congress is considering the Urban Mass Transportation Act of 1966. The bill was reported out of my committee and passed the House on August 16th. The bill included an amendment which I offered for grants for technical study. Under this section of the bill, grants are made available to states and local public bodies and agencies: for planning, engineering, and designing of urban mass transportation projects. Studies pertaining to feasibility of- projects, preparation of ~urveys and engineering specifications, and other pre-construction activities fall under this section. The version of the bill which passed the House kept my amendment intact. I am pleased with the progress which has been made in this area and shall continue to do all that I can to promote the advancement of interest and action in the field of rapid �August 19, 1966 Page Two transit.

The General Manager said Los Angeles, Seattle and Washington, D.C., were to have referenda during 1968 with regard to rapid transit. He pointed out that insufficiency of federal funds may be less important than the competition from these cities. Mr. Rich mentioned the importance of taking steps to hold a referendum in 1968. Mr. Stuart reported on meetings with Cousins Properties regarding MARTA's requirements. Cousins Properties were about to incur certain construction expenses in the Air Rights area in their efforts to provide for future rapid transit operations; these were costs that could be charged to MARTA under appropriate agreements. Mr. Stuart requested the Hoard's approval to continue negotiations with Cousins. Costs involved had not been determined; however, Mr. Stuart es timated th em t o be between $70,000 and $90,000 . The Chief Engineer was to mee t with repre sentatives from Cousins Properties and reach agreement as to exact costs which would be eventually chargeable to MARTA, when funds were availab le. MARTA would be responsible for accrued interest as well. It was moved by Mr. Bishop and seconded by Mr. Haverty that the General Manager continue negotiations with Cousins Properties with an indication of intent o~ the part o f the Authority, provided al l requirements were met. - 3 - �Mr. Stuart said the proposed subcontract between Parsons, Brinckerhoff-Tudor, Bechtel and Law Engineering Testing Company for test borings had been reviewed and found to be in order. Upon motion by Mr. Bishop, seconded by Mr. McMillan, approval was given to proceed with the subcontract. Mr. Rich suggested that in the future the General Manager prepare a brief write-up on each proposed subcontract prior to the Board meeting. Consultants Parsons, ·Brinckerhoff-Tudor, Bechtel Mr. Coil summarized the report given at the briefing prior to the Board meeting, which included parking layouts, patronage estimates, and parking lot requirements for the 64-mile system; work contemplated in connection with the soils engineer on the central and west lines which Law Engineering Testing Company was to do; as well as the work being done in San Francisco on central line alignments affecting the I-75/I-85 connector on West Peachtree Street.

"Rapid Busways" Proposal As a result of a request from Mayor Ivan Allen, the Board had directed the MARTA staff to review the rapid busways proposal made recently by the Atlanta Transit System. Mr. Stuart read the complete report of this evaluation, the summary of which is attached hereto and made a part of the minutes. In response to a question from Mr. Blalock, Mr. Stuart said the rights-of-way for rapid busways and rapid transit were not the same. The Chairman polled each Director for his reaction to the report. Mr. McMillan was emphatic in hoping that nothing would divert the Board from its efforts to bring rail rapid transit to metropolitan Atlanta . Mr . Bishop said he was concerned with the legal entanglements involved in the busways proposal. Mr. Haverty stated he wouid be interested in the rebuttal from the Atlanta Transit System with regard to the report. Mr. Adamson felt there were too many problems - 4 - �and that there would be a delay in rapid transit if the busways proposal were accepted.

Blount stated that he was presiding at the request of Mr . Rich. Mr. Blount expressed regret in behalf of the Members over the recent resignation of Mr. Rich as Chairman of the Authority. Mr. Rich had tendered his resignation to Mayor Ivan Allen on June 23rd, advising that due to the press of other essential business he felt that it was necessary that he leave the Board. The meeting was then called to order by the Vice Chairman . Minutes Minutes of the June 3rd meeting had been mailed prior to the meet ing . Upon motion by Mr . Bishop , seconded by Mr . Haverty, they were unanimously approved . Financial Report The Authority's financial report as of June 30, 1969 was before the Board. Mr. Stuart asked for approval of the statement in order that it might be mailed to the Local Governments, as required at the close of each quarter by the MARTA Act. He pointed out that tbe budget was closing out for the first half with a balance of some $14,000.00 due to lesser charges to Counsel and PBTB . Financial support from DeKalb County and Gwinnett County had been assured for the balance of the calendar year. Payment from Clayton County had been received for the entire year. Meetings had been held with financial officials of the City of Atlanta and Fulton County concerning their contributions for the second half of 1969. Attention was called to the Bus Lease Account financial s tatement . Mr. Stuart stated . that the apparent deficit reflected in this account was not an "out of pocket" deficit and was due to the differential between interest and depreciation charges and that the two figures would even out within a few years. Upon motion by Mr . Bishop, seconded by Mr. McMillan, the financial statement was unanimously accepted , and Mr. Blount directed that a copy be forwarded to heads of the Local Governments and financial officers. The financial statement is attached and made a part of these minutes. Report of General Manager Mr . Stuart stated that at the June meeting the Board had authorized him to proceed with the preparation of an application to the Department of Transportation (DOT) fo r financial suppo rt towards a proposed technical studies work progr am . He sta t ed this program had been presented to the AATS Technical Co o rdinating Committee (TCC) at their meeting on June 19 , 1969 and subsequently the TCC had p a ss ed a resoluti on a pproving the filing of the appl icat ion with DOT and recommended its appr oval by the AATS Policy Committee. · - 2 - �Report of General Manager (cont ' d) Afte r some discussion the Board agreed that before lengthy and expensive engineering and cost studies are made , various transit proposals should be analyzed and taken to public meetings to determine their general acceptance and political feasibility . The Board instructed its General Manager and Chief Engineer , working with its consulting engineers, Parsons Brinckerhoff-TudorBechte l, to analyze the mass transit recommendations of the Voorhees Report and to compare them with the regional rapid transit system proposed earlier by MARTA. They are then to produce a recommendati on for a s y stem which will include t he best elements of both proposals e The Board asked that this analysis be completed for presentation at the MARTA Board Meeting on August 5th. Following this meeting , it is expected that this analysis will be presented to the AATS Technical Coordinating Committee , the AATS Policy Committee , and at public meetings. In assigning this work to the engineers, the Board agreed that this approach is in agreement with the resolution of the AATS Policy Committee of May 22, 1969 in which MARTA was asked to develop f u r ther specific information in connection with those r e commendations o f the Voorbee s Report involving rapid transit. Resignation of John C. Staton Mr. Blount advised the members that Mr. John c. Staton had also resigned from the Board because extensive t ravel commitments mad e it impossible for him t o attend regular Board meeting s e I t wa s with regret that Mr . Staton had found it necessary to take this action since he had contributed tremendously to the rapid transit p r ogram .. Mr e Blount advised that if it was a g reeabl e to the Members he would be glad to serve as Acting Cha irman of the Authority unt il an e lecti on c o uld be held after the two new directors are appointed . This action was enthusiastically approved by the Membe rs present. Report of Counsel Mr o Huie stated that several legislator s had asked him if MARTA was plann i ng to seek a n e w sour ce of loc al f unds f o r a llocation to rap id transit . He s ugg est ed tha t the Board c onsid er a study of possible s ources with the view of eventually r ecommending a speci fi c source b eing earmar ked for rapid t r ansit . Ad jou rnme n t Mr .

In the Summary of HighlightsRecommended Transportation Program, the consultant says 11 The arterial and collector street system included in the highway recommendations is fundamentally that developed by the AATS staff following analysis of earlier forecasts of highway travel and review with area planning and traffic eng i neering staffs. This system represents a general plan indicating the approximate locations and scope of the arterial-collector system. It will require further study and refinement as the final freeway and transit routes are determined and as future development occurs. The traffic operations study procedures advocated by the U. S. Department of Transportation (TOPICS) will be useful in this work. A development and improvement pr ogram of major proportions is required and it will require a major financial underta king. " You are asked to review the enclosed map with two separate and distinct objectives: FIRST : The arterial and collector system is intended to be essentially the same as that contained in Test Netwo r k 80 3 which was developed jointly by the AATS staff and the TCC membe r s during 1967. Each county's TCC member or alternate has a colo r -coded copy of Networ k 803 showing the a r terial and collector system. You are requested to carefully compare the enclosed map with this earlier version ( 80 3 ) to identify copying errors . The first objective is to produce a correct copy of the recommended plan . Please notify me of any errors prior to Au gust 15 so that I can assemble the comments and transmit them to the State Higpway Department for co rr ection of the o ri ginal . SECO ND: You are as ked to aga i n revie w the map (as co rr ec te d) to i dentify any su r face streets which mi ght wa rr an t r ev i s i on either i n functional classif ic a t ion (h i ghe r o r l owe r ) o r number of lanes ( mor e or less) .

The AATS sta ff intends th a t the recommended pla n should refl e ct t he local gov e rnm e nt s plans to the maximum extent pos s ibl e , consistent with overall AATS r e gional system planning criteria . Th e - 2 - 1 �second objective of this review is to provide the AATS staff and consultant with current local technical staff s u gg es ti on s ab o u t po s s i b l e a rte r i al an d col l e ct o r re visions in the recommended AATS plan. Please notify me by mail before September 9 of any suggested changes, including appropriate supporting technical materials, so that I can consolidate your technical comments for review by the AATS staff and consultant. These comments sho~ld be separate and distinct from the previously discussed "corrections." TCC members representing municipalities are reminded that they should consult appropriate technical staff persons in each city within their county in carrying out these reviews. Each TCC member is expected to consult all appropriate staff persons within his agency. As you know, the Policy Committee recently authorized a TOPICS study for metropolita n Atlanta (lraffic Qperations !:_"rogram for Increasing Capacity and Safety). The TCC's TOPICS Subcommittee Ts active l y-engaged in developing a proposed planning program. State Highway Department TOPICS guidelines indicate that the approved AATS highway plan will form the basis for the TOPICS study system. This State Highway Department policy adds urgency to the need to reach final technical and policy level agreement on the recommended transportation plan.

' ©@ G 12:00 News July 2, 1969 RAY MOORE When a Decatur housewife - not mine, incidentally ~ heard that Richard Rich had stepped down as MARTA chairman, she said, "That's good I'm tiring of hearin, our neighbors say he only wants rapid transit so people can get downtown to his store." That criticism was unjustified by logic - because the tougher it is to get down town, the more Rich will sell in suburban stores. Moreover, those who worked with him know him as a public spirited man who wants what's best for Atlanta. Still, the complaint was heard frequently - and it was I one more albatross hovering over last November's ' sinkin of rapid transit. Another person who watched MARTA in action - if that iE the proper word for it - said, "Mr. Rich is an intelligent, . forceful man - perhaps too forceful and authoritarian. He ran the board like he was running an effi- cient store. But there were many volunteers, and volunteers don't always jumµ like paid employees." That same force and authority, however, was necessary to bring together and hold t ogether a METRO group different people with different ideas and different interests. Richard Rich held them because of who he ii and what he is. �r- 7 @ RAY MOORE The Board will elec.t a permanent chairman to take Rich's ; place. But Mayor Allen will name a person · to fill his seat on the board. When he's looking around, the Mayor is not likely to forget the opposition to MARTA from the Negro community. · l MARTA tried to counter that by hiring a Negro staff member late in the game. It was too late. He was the last hired and the first fired after the election. I Rich is quoted as saying he be1ieves a younger man ought I to head the authority - one who has the patience to wait ; for things to happen and see them through. t Young? Maybe. Patient? Please, not while we're stalle, on the expressway - cooling in a steel pot on a concrete griddle.

MINUTES Minutes of the July 1 meeting had been forwarded to the members prior to the meeting. Upon motion by Dr. Atwood, seconded by Mr . Cathy, they were unanimously approved. FINANCIAL REPORT The General Manager reported that administrative and operating expenses were well within the budget and the fund balance remained ahead of the budget . Appropriations from the Local Governments for the third quarter had been received with the exception of Gwinnett County. After some discussion, the financial statement was unanimously accepted and is attached and made a part of these Minutes. REPORT BY THE VICE CHAIRMAN Mr e Blount reported on his recent appearance before the United States Senate Banking and Currency Committee in Washington on July 29 in support of the Transit Trust Fund. He noted that he had urged the passage of this important legislation as a means of financing mass transit . He was doubtful that the legislation would pa ss t his year but was hopeful that it would be introduced for congressional consideration again next January~ Following his appearance before this Committee, he met with Senators Russell and Talmadge to seek their support in the passage of the bill. ENGINEERING & DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE Mr ~ McMillon reported on a probl e m that had previously been brought before the Board but never resolved regardi ng additional costs to Cousins Properties Inc . in modifying the construction of their a ir rights parking development to accommodate a future rapid transit line . He said the p r oject in the Spring-TechwoodHunter Street Viaduct area was now complete and in operation with all constr uction costs finalized ~ Mr. Cousins had asked that the Board acknowledge its o bligation to pay for the additional cost of construction amounting to $85 , 770 . 00 o Adequat e documentation had been received f r om the contractor to substantiate t he additional costs and the Chief Engineer for the Transit Authority had - 2 - • �reviewed and verified the above figure ~ Meetings had also been held with L&N Railroad officials under whose jurisdiction the construction work was perf ormed, and they felt this cost was appropriate 0 Mr ., McMillan stated that it was the recommendation of the Engineering and Design Review Committee that the Board pass a r esolution in which it recommended payment of the $85 , 770e00, plus a reasonable interest rate to Cousins Properties Inc . for extra expenditures on its air rights development in the vicinity of the Terminal Station, contingent upon a successful referendum to finance a mass transit system for Metropolitan Atlanta ., Upon motion by Mr .. Haverty, seconded by Dr ., Atwood 8 the following resolution, after being read by the General Manager , was unanimously adopted·i WHEREAS u on August 1 8 1967 u the MARTA Board in it s r egular meeting considered the problem of the Air Rights Development over the proposed west line right- of -way, and WHEREAS , the Board authorized the General Manager to negotiate with Cousins Proper ties Inc. , the developer , with an i ndi cation of intent on the par t of the Authority to bear necessary expenses to which Cousins might be put to accommodate a rap i d t r ansit line beneath the said Air RightsDevelopment e and WHEREAS , it now appears that the construction has been completed at a cost to Cousins of $85 , 770 more than the same would have cost without special a r rang ements having been made for t he proposed MARTA lines , and WHEREAS, it appears that an expenditure considerably in excess of the aforesaid amount would be required had not Cousins been wi lling to make advance p r ovision for said right of way during construction ; NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED u that the Board of Directors of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Tr ansit Authority hereby agree a nd accept as a proper figur e t he sum of $85 ,770 for extra expenditures by Cousi n s P r oper ties Inc . on its Air Rights Development to provide a mass transit right of way and does hereby r ecomme nd, contingent upon a successful referendum financing a mass transit plan for metropolitan Atlanta approving routes whereby the right of way provided for mass transit by Cousins Properties Inc . through said a rea will be utilized for the benefit of t he public, that t he said sum of $85 0 770 be p a id to Cousins P roper ties Inc.,, its successors or assigns, and BE I T FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Board recommend that Cousins Proper ties Inc. be reimbu rsed at a fair and reasonable interest rate on the afo re said s um from thi s date forthwith and until the same is final°ly acknowledged and paid as set forth above . - 3 - �Mrs McMillan further reported that the Engineering and Design Review Committee had met on July 24th for the purpose of discussing the progress being m~de by the staff and consultants in executing the assignment given them July 1 to compare the earlier MARTA plan and the Voorhees recommended plan and to produce a recommendation for a transit system which would include the best elements of both plans. Mr. McMillan stated that the Committee felt that work was proceeding along appropriate lines but was not complete enough to present to the Board at the current meeting. Mr. Blount suggested that the Committee work closely with the staff and con$ultants and report to the Board regularly as to the progress of this work. REPORT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE Dr. Atwood presented a new two-year work program and an application for $718,000.00 in federal funds. The work program covered the work necessary to prepare a new rapid transit proposal for submission to the voters, including several new projects, as well as a revision of earlier work, some of which had been outdated since failure of the referendum last year. Three broad categories of work were involved, the first of which concerned concept studies involving route or ha~dware adjustments. This work would amount to ~bout 8% of the total project. Continuation and completion of the Voorhees work is included in this; also an analysis of busways. Second, there would be a refinement of an adopted system to the same standards of detail and accuracy as the system proposed by MARTA in 1968. This work would amount to 47¾ of the total. Patronage, operations and revenue estimating, and a new financial plan would be among the projects in this element. Third, there would b e a supporting program which would form a foundation for public understanding of the plan as finally adopted. This would be 45¾ of the total project. Included in this element would be a cost/benefit analysis and a public information program plan~ tring project. The total budget for the two-year period would be $1,693,000.00. For 1970, the budget is $732,000.00 and for 1 971 $961, 000 . 00 . Federal funds would amount to $359,000.00 each year. State funds would be $73,200.00 in 1970 and $91,600.00 in 1971. Local participation would be $299,800.00 in 1970, returning to the pre- 1969 level . In 1971 the local participation would be $465,400 . 00 , a s omewhat higher rate than previously. Completion of the work described would result in a program which could be sutrnitted to the voters late in 1971 o r in 1972. Dr. Atwood stated that it was the consensus of the Committee members that the budget, pS pr~sented, was appropriate to the work to be done during 1970 and 1971 and recommended that the Board adopt the budget framework and plan to approach the Local Governments about 1970-71 appropriations. I~ response to questions , Mr. Stuart stated that the new program is responsive to the resoluti on of the AATS Policy committee; that the program is in keeping with the Federal guides; that Federal funds are available, and - 4 - �I that the Federal application can be amended if it is found desi r able to do so after the p r ogram i s discussed with Local Government s ~ Mr ~ Blount stated it was necessary to have not only money from the Local Governments , but their full support of the program as well ~ Dr e Atwood said it was most important that we anticipate needs for 1971, going beyond 1970 . Mr . Wilson suggested that the Board take the recommendation to the supporting governments as early as possible to determine if they will fully support the p r ogr am a After discussion of the proposed 1970-71 budget and work program, including the new Federal application, upon motion by Dr a Atwood , seconded by Mr e McMillon, they were unanimously adopted , subject to gaining acceptance by the Local Governments ~ CHANGE IN TIME OF REGULAR BOARD MEETINGS Mr $ Stuart stated that one of the Board members had approached him about setting an earlier meeting time due to heavy traffic congestion a r ound 4:30 and 5:00 P 9M. following adjournment of the meeti ng s i n o rder to accommodate those members living in adjacent counties ~ After a discussion, the members approved moving the meeting time of f utur e meetings fr om 3 :30 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. REMARKS BY GLENN E. BENNETT - ARMPC Mr . Bennett stated he had two items that he would like to discuss wi th the Board . The first item was the continuing planning activities f o r the Atlanta Area Transportation Study (AATS) which would amount t o practically a new AATS . ARMPC had passe d a reso l ution at their July 28 , 1969 meeting in which they urged their member governments and other appropriate agencies to take immediate steps to initiate the continuing , comprehens i ve land use/ t ransportati on planning program called f o r by the Atlanta Area Transportati o n Study Policy Committee and keyed t o the 1970 census e Mr . Bennett hoped that .MARTA would continue to parti c ipate i n the AATS work . Mr . Wingfield stated the continuing p lanning process was a Federal requi rement and ARMPC was concerned abou t the State Highway Department of Georgia and MARTA quali f y ing for F e deral funds . Mr. Blount pointed out that our proposed Techni ca l Studies Application to the Depar tment of Transportatio n d o es hav e an i t em for the continuing planning wor k and that MARTA does i nte nd to cooperate a nd p articipa te in f uture AATS work. The second i tem discussed by Mr . Be nnett was t he purchase o f the Atlanta Tra nsi t Syste m by MARTA. He stated many p eop le b elieve MARTA shou l d purch a s e ATS n ow a s an int e rim mea sure to improve transit service in t h e Atlanta area. This item was also discussed at the ARMPC meeting on J u ly 28e It was Mr. Huie's opinion t h at the legal problems cou ld be worked out for this transaction but · the big problem was financi al - 5 - �support. It was felt that if MARTA bought the Atlanta Transit System and improved the bus service, it would probably operate at a deficit, and the deficit would require a subsidy from the supporting governments which would probably require a referendum to raise these funds. Mr. Blount asked about Fede~al support in such a situation. Mr. Stuart stated that the Authority could receive up to a twothirds grant for buying the Atlanta Transit System, but there was no Federal provisions at this time for financial assistance towards an operating subsidy. Mr. Haverty stated that it was MARTA's function now to do planning for a mass transit system and that the purchase of ATS should be part of the implementation when the over-all project has been approved by the public. Mr. Blount pointed out that our proposed application to D.O.T. does have an item for the bus system acquisition investigation and that it was his opinion that purchase of the Transit System should be initiated by the participating local governments rather than by MARTA. Mr. Bennett asked that a representative from MARTA atte nd the next AR!-1PC meeting, which Mr. Blount acknowledged. ADJOURNMENT The Vice Chairman adjourned th~ meeting ~t 4: 25 P .M.

C., "Metro" rapid transit car is now in the midst of a series of appearances for public inspection in the four counties and four cities which will be served by the 97-mile rapid rail transit system, scheduled to begin initial operation in 1972. The prototype has sculptured, contemporary design, featuring a polished metal exterior and tinted panoramic windows. Passengers will enter the vehicle through three, 50-inch wide double doors on each side. The interior of the car permits two-by-two seating for 82 passengers. The decor includes wall-to-wall, wool pile carpeting in gold and brown, with seating in black, saddle tan, and oyster white. When the Metro is completed, more than 800 cars will carry millions · of commuters per year in air-conditioned comfort at speeds up to 75 miles per hour. "The High Cost of Delay." MARTACTION At its regular meeting July 2, the MARTA Board of Directors approved a planning study fo r a line in the Perry Homes-Proctor Creek area. The study was estimated to cost $16,000 and would take eight to ten weeks to complete. A t the August 6 meeting, the Board agreed to retain the planning fi rm of Eric H all Associates to continue work to coordinate MARTA's plans with those of other public agencies and private development groups. The Board adopted a resolution calling for a public hearing on the proposed "Buckhead Alternate" route; the hearing was set fo r Thursday, August 15, 1968, at 7: 30 p.m. at the Garden Hills Elementary School.

MARTA-ATS BUSES ARRIVE Ten of the most modern buses ever built, and the only buses of their kind anywhere, were delivered to eager Atlantans July 1, 1968. The arrival of these new buses was especially _s ignificant because it marked the first of many anticipated joint efforts between the Atlanta Transit Sys tem , who is leasing and operating the buses, and MARTA, which purchased the buses. The buses were officially welcomed in a brief ceremony by Richard H. Rich, MARTA Chairman; William P . Maynard , President of Atlanta Transit System ; and C. J. Jacobs, President of Local # 732, which represents the drivers. Mr. Maynard noted that " the buses would immediately be put into service, to se rve riders on routes throughout the city, and give everyone the opportunity to enjoy and inspect the new ve hicles in air-conditioned comfort." The buses, which were built by General Motors, were purchased by MART A under competitive bidding procedures, and will be leased to the Transit Sys tem over a period of ten years. Revenu e to MART A from the lease will pay both the principal and the interest. Mr. Rich outlined the reasons for the purchase. " It is esse nti al to the development of rapid transit for Metropolitan Atl anta that a balanced sys tem of transit be developed, including full y coordinated bus tra nsportation. " He noted th at under the terms of the lease ag reemen t, the Transit System will fu rnish MA RTA with inform ation as to patronage, routes and other information helpful to MARTA in its studi es of a bus feeder system . "Through this rapid transit project," Mr. Rich concluded, "MART A can contribute immediately to relieve some of the transit pressure, and can meanwhile gather much valuable information in regard to the coordination of such facilities in the future ." A prototype of the new vehicles, the first of its kind tested anywhere, has operated in Atl anta since las t fall and greatly exceeded expectations in terms of perform ance and public acceptance. Each bus is powered by a big, new 338 H .P ., V-8 engine that repl aces the stand ard 238 H.P ., V-6 formerly standard in city buses . The greater size of this new engine makes it equal to the task of operating faster and more efficiently in all types of traffic conditions, while powering the air-conditioning system to deliver thermostaticall y controlled comfort. These unique new 47-passenger buses also feature the latest in appearance and comfort styling. New, super-soft foam seats of speci al design, are two inches wider than stand ard with higher seat backs to afford passe ngers greater comfort and leg room . Interiors are tastefully color-h armonized in a fresh, modern decor. Riding comfort has been increased by a more adva nced suspension system and new super V-8 transmission that allows smooth shifts under full engine power and an overdrive feature which cuts-in at speeds over 40 m .p .h. Coupled with the new power pl ant, the vehicles are capable of highw ay speeds up to 65 m.p.h ., with an in crease in operating economy. · The buses which are now in service will be used on various routes throughout the entire system. MA RTA Chairman Richard H . Rich, in driver's seat, hands keys to A TS President W illiam P. M aynard. The ten MART A -owned, ATS-operated air-conditioned buses were placed into service immediately throughout the transit system. s �MARTAcTroN ___________________ At its May meeting, the MARTA Board of Directors agreed to purchase ten air-conditioned buses and lease them to the Atlanta Transit System. The money to buy the buses would be borrowed from a local bank , and the revenue from the lease would be sufficient to pay both principle and interest. ( See story on Page 1.) The Board also agreed to perform additional studies on a Model Cities line for approximately $30,000.00 and on a Buckhead Alternate for approx imately $9,500.00. \ The Board confirmed the appointment of Mr. Ed Gilcrease of Parsons Brinckerhoff-Tudor-Bechtel as MARTA representative to work with the Alan Voorhees firm in the Atlanta Area Transportation Study. ( 'ta I I A. At its June meeting, the Board was advised that the General Motors Corporation was the low bidder on the purchase of the ten air-conditioned buses, at $38,728.68 per bus, with delivery charges specified se parately at $300 .54 each. The Board, by resolution , accepted the General Motors Corporation bid . General Manager Henry L. Stuart recommended a number of additional planning programs as a result of the recent series of public hearings. Stuart reported that the ge neral sentiment expressed at the 12 public hearin gs conducted in late April and in May was favorable toward th e routes and station locations which had been proposed by the engineering consu ltan ts. Stuart stated th at a number of recommendations had been made for modifications, extensions, and additions to the proposed routes. He recommended th at MARTA "undertake a planning program similar in refinement to what is required under Section 701 of th e Housin g Act of 1954 to exa mine the possibilities of the following: I. A line to wa rds the Perry Homes area in Northwest Atlanta. 2. An extension of the West line to Fulton Indust ri al Boulevard. 3. An extension of the East Line past T-285. 4. A line towards South D eKalb County. This line needs only to be studied sufficiently at this time to identify potential corridors. There is no need as yet to perform patron age studi es." Stuart's proposal was adopted by th e Boa rd. Stuart also summari zed the public response at th e 12 public hearin gs. The followin g is a brief acco unt of Stuart's report. EAST POIN T , April 29. East Point and College Park speakers we re outspoken in th eir support of th e projec t and the way in which we a re developing our program. They were delighted that the first hearing was held in their areas. Onl y o ne person spoke in opposition , and he objected to the cost and to taking people out of Eas t Point. LENOX, April 30 . Leading ci ti zens s poke strongly for the project. The Buckhead Alternate excited no interest at the hearing, but since then we have lea rned of co nsiderable feeling in opposition to this alternate. When work on this subject progresses suffi ciently. we should go back for another formal hea rin g. DOWNTOWN, May 2. We received st ron g endorsement from all the business gro ups such as the At lanta Cha mber of Commerce, Cent ra l Atlanta Progress, Inc. , A tl ant a Jaycees, a nd from the Mayor's office. WEST END, May 6. West E nd business, civic and church groups gave us a strong endorsement. They did not place into the record their ea rli er req uest fo r a different station site. We are continuing to wo rk with them on th is matte r. CLAYTON COUNTY, May 9 (Forest Par/.:). We received I 00 per cent support from the C lay ton County Comm issioners and gratify ing suppo!1 from business a nd other leaders. One man a ppeared to protes t cost es timates which were not at issue at the hearin g, and to objec t to the continuance of the C layton County vacancy on th e MARTA Board. DECATUR, May 13. We received strong support from business and political leaders, but they made it very clear that more lines are needed to serve DeKalb County. Strong support was given to th e D ecatur Alternate, which would pl ace the station close r to the Courthouse Square. One speaker expressed concern abou t costs. DORAVILLE, May 15. This hearin g was also productive in that local speakers gave us advice about the schedule of development they expect. In one word, "quicker." They recognize th at Doravi lle/ Chamblee is a long way out, but a prolonged development schedule is not acceptab le. A stated reas on for the impatience of North D eKal b County residents is the crowded condition of the Northeast E xpressway. WEST SIDE, May 16. A very productive hearing in tha t communications were established with a substantial pa rt of the Negro community. We received a list of requ ests from the Atlanta Summit Leadership Conference, and we we re ab le to respond to them positively. CANDLER PARK, May 20. We used a different communications pr0gram to generate atte ndance, and learned th at the method used for the West Side he arin g was more effective. Statements made most often by speakers related to requests for assurances about no job discrimination. AME ZION CHURCH, Ma y 22. Several speake rs took exception to our arrangement for the West Lake Station . They place more importance on our use of vacant land th an we do, and th ey do not pl ace as mu ch importance on street access as we do . Most speakers addressed themselves to objections to our organization ; specifically, the absence of Negro employees o n th e staff a nd th e lim ited Negro represent ation on the Board. We explained this as best we cou ld . SANDY SPRINGS, May 27. Speakers presented an understandin g th at Sandy Springs is not a first priority, and they expressed quite clearly th at they expect to be pa rt of our project so me day. SOUTH DEKALB, May 29. There was so me expression of interest and need for a rap id tra nsit line into South DeKa lb Count y where non e is now shown. However, the proponents of this South . DeKalb Line a lso stated th at th ey do not travel into At la nt a very often . METROPOLITAN ATLANTA RAPID TRANSIT AUTHORITY 8 0 8 GLENN BLO G . 120 M A RIETT A ST . , N .W . ATLAN T A.

Schukraft, Southwest Atlanta Association, Inc. Newsmen - WAGA-TV Newsmen — WSB-Radio Dick Miles, Atlanta Constitution Bill Collins, Atlanta Journal Si « The meeting was called to order by Mr. Roy A. Blount, Acting Chairman. MINUTES Minutes of the October 7th meeting had been mailec: prior to the meeting and were unanimously approved upon a motion by Mr. Bishop, seconded by Mr. Hardin. FINANCIAL REPORT The Financial Report as of October 29, 1969, presented by Mr. Stuart, showed appropriations received from the participating governments for the fourth quarter with the exception of Fulton and Gwinnett Counties. Mr. Stuart pointed out that since prepara-— tion of the statement, Fulton County's fourth payment had been received, leaving Gwinnett County in arrears for the third and fourth quarters. Staff and administrative costs continued to run within the budget. Upon motion by Mr. Bishop, seconded by Mr. Hardin, the financial statement was unanimously approved and is attached and made a part of these Minutes, Mr. Stuart stated that Mr. Hardin had suggested that the monthly financial statement would be more informative if the budget column were pro-rated and if it included a new column for the same period last year. Mr. Hardin's suggestions had been referred to the Finance Committee, and Mr. Stuart was directed to set up an additional meeting between the Finance Committee, Counsel, Accountant and Auditor for MARTA, sometime during December to discuss the matter further and report back to the Board by the first of the year. Mr. Blount stated that it would be necessary to approve the proposed 1970 budget during December. It had already been submitted to the Local Governments and favorable comments had been received from them. Mr. Blount further stated that due to changes in the City government as a result of the recent election that the new budget should be submitted to the newly elected Mayor, Vice-Mayor, Aldermen, and to any others concerned. Upon motion by Mr. Haverty, seconded by Mr. McMillon, it was unanimously agreed that a meeting should be arranged by the General Manager with tie new officials to apprise them of the proposed 1970 budget and work program. REPORT OF GENERAL MANAGER Mr. Stuart reported on a meeting in Atlanta on October 23rd with Mr. Jerome C. Premo of the Urban Mass Transportation Adminis-~— tration, Washington, D. C., at which meeting representatives of s #2 of the Highway Department, Federal Highway Administration, U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Atlanta Transit System, Metropolitan Planning Commission, City of Atlanta, Central Atlanta Progress, Inc., Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc., and - Other transportation and planning agencies were in attendance. Purpose of the meeting was to discuss MARTA's new federal applica- tion, as well as applications filed by the City of Atlanta and Central Atlanta Progress, Inc., and by Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc. It was pointed out that Federal agencies are concerned about overlapping work items in the above applications, as well as that of the TOPICS (Traffic Operations Program to Increase Capacity and Safety) Study that is soon to be initiated by a consultant for the State Highway Department. It was noted that these studies should be coordinated with each other in order to avoid any dupli- cation of work. Work schedules would be submitted to the Federal agencies with an explanation of how these various programs will be coordinated and tied in. Two charts were presented by Mr. Stuart, the first of which showed the work schedule for conducting an East-West Busway feasibility study. Planning projections for this study would be furnished by ARMPC and the remainder of the work would be under- taken jointly by Parsons Brinckerhoff-Tudor-—Bechtel and Alan M. Voorhees and Associates. The work would take about nine months but it is hopeful that early conclusions can be reached before that time period. Work items l, 2, 3 and 4 of the MARTA applica- tion are involved in this evaluation study. The second chart presented reflected MARTA'ts total work program and it showed coordination with the Central Area Study being sponsored by the City of Atlanta and Central Atlanta Pro- gress, and the work of Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc. This would be a two-year program with the approximate starting date being January 1, 1970, broken down into two phases with Phase I being the work programmed for 1970 and Phase II the remaining work. Upon completion of Mr. Stuart's presentation a copy of each chart was furnished the Members with the request that they be studied, followed by any questions the Board might have. The General Manager stated that a written monthly progress report would be required in order to keep all agencies fully informed of developments throughout the work program. It was pointed out that all work elements reflected on the charts were contained in the new federal application being submitted to DOT with the exception of the planning projections which were being prepared by ARMPC and would be incorporated in the appropriate section of the application when received. Mr. Stuart expressed hope that a new approach to transit, new amendments that would be required, and a sound financial plan would be ready to present to the General Assembly during LOT Mr. Stuart also mentioned that Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc. had filed their application directly with the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, but HUD preferred to have it filed through MARTA with the Transit Authority being the Administrative Agency and responsible for the work. It would not cost the Transit Authority any funds except for the occasional staff time that would be required to review and administer the work. Mr. Stuart had agreed to this arrangement and planned to meet with EOA officials in the near future. REPORT OF PUBLIC INFORMATION DIRECTOR Mr. Elliott reported that public information activities were being accelerated as requested at the October Board Meet- ing. Contacts had been made with Editors of the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, and with News Directors of local radio and television stations. Information had been supplied for a special edition of the Atlanta Journal, and WRNG Radio had agreed to provide a one-hour program when the MARTA program is defined. A re-cap of the MARTA program had been drafted and will be put into final form when the program is firmed up. The re-cap will serve as the framework for more detailed informational efforts. ADJOURNMENT Mr. Blount adjourned the meeting at 3:45 P.M. NEXT MEETING December 2, 1969 — 3:00 P.M. ae son, Assistant Secretary.

Minutes Upon motion by Mr. Bishop, seconded by Mr. Blount, the reading of the minutes of the July meeting was dispensed with and they were unanimously approved. Financial Report The General Manager presented the financial report as of July 31, 1967, which is attached hereto and made a part of these minutes. DeKalb County had sent in its second quarterly payment; Gwinnett County was the only one in arrears. Progress Reports General Manager Mr. Stuart reported on the two-week managerial seminar he attended at Kent State University, Kent, Ohio, sponsored by Kent University and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The General Manager said Los Angeles, Seattle and Washington, D.C., were to have referenda during 1968 with regard to rapid transit. He pointed out that insufficiency of federal funds may be less important than the competition from these cities. Mr. Rich men- tioned the importance of taking steps to hold a referendum in 1968. Mr. Stuart reported on meetings with Cousins Properties regarding MARTA's requirements. Cousins Properties were about to incur cer- tain construction expenses in the Air Rights area in their efforts to provide for future rapid transit operations; these were costs that could be charged to MARTA under appropriate agreements. Mr. Stuart requested the Board's approval to continue negotiations with Cousins. Costs involved had not been determined; however, Mr. Stuart estimated them to be between $70,000 and $90,000. The Chief Engineer was to meet with representatives from Cousins Prop- erties and reach agreement as to exact costs which would be even- tually chargeable to MARTA, when funds were available. MARTA would be responsible for accrued interest as well. It was moved by Mr. Bishop and seconded by Mr. Haverty that the General Manager continue negotiations with Cousins Properties with an indication of intent on the part of the Authority, provided all requirements were met. Mr. Stuart said the proposed subcontract between Parsons, Brincker- hoff-Tudor, Bechtel and Law Engineering Testing Company for test borings had been reviewed and found to be in order. Upon motion by Mr. Bishop, seconded by Mr. McMillon, approval was given to pro- ceed with the subcontract. Mr. Rich suggested that in the future the General Manager prepare a brief write-up on each proposed subcontract prior to the Board meeting. Consultants Parsons, Brinckerhoff-Tudor, Bechtel Mr. Coil summarized the report given at the briefing prior to the Board meeting, which included parking layouts, patronage estimates, and parking lot requirements for the 64-mile system; work contem- plated in connection with the soils engineer on the central and west lines which Law Engineering Testing Company was to do; as well as the work being done in San Francisco on central line alignments affecting the I-75/I-85 connector on West Peachtree Street. Hammer, Greene, Siler Associates In the absence of Mr. Hammer, Mr. Bennett said the report on finan- Cial feasibility was completed and that copies would be made avail- able to the Board very soon. "Rapid Busways" Proposal As a result of a request from Mayor Ivan Allen, the Board had directed the MARTA staff to review the rapid busways proposal made recently by the Atlanta Transit System. Mr. Stuart read the complete report of this evaluation, the summary of which is attached hereto and made a part of the minutes. In response to a question from Mr. Blalock, Mr. Stuart said the rights-of-way for rapid busways and rapid transit were not the same. The Chairman polled each Director for his reaction to the report. Mr. McMillon was emphatic in hoping that nothing would divert the Board from its efforts to bring rail rapid transit to metropolitan Atlanta. Mr. Bishop said he was concerned with the legal entangle- ments involved in the busways proposal. Mr. Haverty stated he would be interested in the rebuttal from the Atlanta Transit System with regard to the report. Mr. Adamson felt there were too many problems and that there would be a delay in rapid transit if the busways proposal were accepted. After discussion, it was moved by Mr. Blount, seconded by Mr. Bishop, and unanimously agreed that the Chairman forward to Mayor Allen MARTA's recommendation that the implementation of the "Rapid Bus- ways" concept not be attempted. Other Business The Chairman introduced the following interns from the Fulton County Comptroller's Office: Harvey Kramer, Al Barr and Bill Hayes. Adjournment The Chairman adjourned the meeting at 3:50 P.M. Next Meeting September 5, 1967.

Sunday, Journal-Constituti on, 11/23/60 re Seen Aid on Transit by Volpe Atlanta in ‘Excellent Position’ For Federal Funds, He Says ‘By BILL COLLINS “John Volpe, former governor of Massachusetts and one of the front-runners for the vice presi- ; dential nod at Se28Snem%.% the 1968 Repub- lican presiden-? tial convention} — was in Atlantas?? Saturday night : to address the lth annual meeting of the National Con- _. ference of States “ue gi slativep ce se Leaders. John Volpe The secretary, at a news con- ference before his speech, ex- plained the Nixon administra- tion’s $10 billion, 12-year public transportation bill and said At- lanta ‘may get the jump on other cities” for funds under the pill, if the measure is approved by Congress. ‘He said the bill would author- | ize him to make $3.1 billion | available immediateiy uput its | being signed into law. The fed- eral money would be spent over Rive Veal st 2 a cche ees “He also said Atlanta would b | “in an excellent position” to get a federal grant totaling two- thirds of the cost of a rapid transit system because of the planning it has done and also be- eause it is one of five ‘‘center cities.” a VOLPE POINTED OUT, how- ever, that under the proposed bill no one state could get more than 12% per cent of the total appropriation. He also told newsmen the Vietnam war is not draining funds he has requested for his department and added, ‘The ad- ministration and the director of the Bureau of the Budget have approved the two transportation bills I have requested.” Volpe says the two measures he would like to see enacted in- clude the $10.1-billion public transportation bill and the air- port-airways bill which would provide $2.5 billion for air-traffic control and $2.5 billion for con- struction of new airports and ex- plansion of existing facilities. He said the administration is concerned about in-flight erashes and feels the airport- airways bill would help diminish the possibility of future colli- sions. | With $2.5 hillion of the air- port-airways bill, Volpe ex- | plained, the federal government —_— E = { ‘The U.S. secretary of transportation says Atlanta will be in ‘an excellent position” to get two-thirds of the money for a rapid lransit system [rom the federal government. . —— | would work towards develop- ment of a fully automated sys- fem c&air-iraffie control sys- tem. “THE OTHER $2.5. billion would be used to help build 900 ‘airports and expand 2,700 air- fields around the country,” Volpe said. : The secretary said the Nixon adm nistration hopes to restrict the umber of incoming flights at five of the nation’s busiest airports and to better control ; the flights at 22 other airports TeUSNE Atlanta’s. n his remarks to the 800 legis- Jative leaders attending the | four-day conference, Volpe | talked about the need for feder- | al-Slale-local government coop- | =e ie eration in solving the nation’s | problems. “Much of the glamour, power and ‘ prestige that once sur-! rounded state Capitols shifted to | Washington in the past 25! years,” he said. “And when the power went to | Washington, many of the tal- | ented young men went also.
