The Honorable Ivan Allen
Mayor, City of Atlanta
City Hall

Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Ivan:

During the past several days I happen to have been in
groups where traffic congestion, rapid transit, the
Sommerville proposal, etc., have been topics of
considerable conversation.

I listened to the reasons given by MARTA for rejection
of the "busways" proposal, and the reasons may seem
logical; however, it is my opinion that most of the
people feel that something must be done right away,

and although the cost of the Sommerville proposal may
have been understated, and the timing estimates may have
been off, I am of the opinion that we should proceed on
the Sommerville proposal immediately, possibly combining
both in our future planning.

Best regards.

Sincerely yours,
