France-Atlanta, Peachtree-Pine, and the Q

2 Dec

Sorry for falling off the face of the earth for so long. But, rather than bore you with the reasons, I’ll tell you about a few of the things that I should have been writing about the last couple of weeks:

  • According to the Midtown Ponce Security Alliance, the homeless men’s shelter at Peachtree and Pine won’t exist much longer in its current manifestation. MPSA doesn’t cite a source for the info, so it’s hard to tell how legitimate it is.  As with any change this big, I’ll believe it when I see it.
  • MARTA’s first BRT projects are up and running on Memorial Drive. Although they’re lacking dedicated lanes, the new “Q” route buses do have signal priority technology, queue-jump lanes at two intersections, and limited stops. I have absolutely nowhere to go on Memorial Drive, but I want to ride it just to see how quick the trip from one end of the route to the other is. Have you tried it?
