Metro Atlanta Transit Options

The mission of the Georgia DOT Transit Office is to "Identify and support cost effective, efficient and safe transportation systems.” This is accomplished through the distribution and oversight management of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grants authorized under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century ACT (MAP-21). FTA’s most recent authorizing legislation is the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP21), Public Law 112-141, signed into law on July 6, 2012, and effective October 1, 2012.
