ATLANTA  —  
Officials with the Atlanta area's public transit system are studying the idea of expanding the service further north into the metro area's sprawling northern suburbs. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority will hold a public meeting about the concept on Sept. 26 at Alpharetta City Hall. Several ideas are being explored, including adding buses, light rail or heavy rail along a 12-mile stretch of Georgia 400 from Dunwoody to Alpharetta. (Photo Courtesy of Chris Yunker via Flickr.)
