POLL: Would You Use an Emory Light Rail Line?

If built, would you be a frequent user?

MARTA between its existing Lindbergh Station and Avondale train stops.

Also known as its Clifton Corridor plan, the new rail would service whiz through the area and include stops at Cheshire Bridge, Sage Hill, CDC/Emory Point and Emory-Rollins.

It's a big, juicy, ambitious whopper of a transportation plan, and while MARTA's sign off is significant, this project has quite a few more approvals and hoops to step through before you're standing on a train platform. (Including a regional one-cent sales tax vote July 31 that would cover $700 million of the project's cost.)

MARTA officials said the project may need an additional eight years of testing and planning before construction could begin, assuming everything goes as planned.

What Patch wants to know is, if it gets built... would you use it? Vote in the poll and tell us why in the comments section below.

I will sell incense and essential oils on the train.

You can't. I'm already selling incense and essential oils on that very same train.

Absolutely, would use it. It is amazing that a decent connection to MARTA rail has not been in place for years. Emory University and the CDC combined account for thousands of employees that all use cars for lack of efficient way to reach the campus. This has been sorely missing and it would in addition greatly facilitate the connection to the airport.
