Gwinnett Commissioners may postpone airport vote

Gwinnett Commissioners may postpone airport vote

LAWRENCEVILLE --  A decision on whether to allow ticketed passenger service at Briscoe Field may have to wait a little longer.

A Gwinnett Board of Commissioners votes is set for 2 p.m. Tuesday, but a resolution may be introduced to delay the vote so that more residents can voice their opinions.

The issue at hand is whether to begin to allow larger passenger planes, seating up to 140, to fly in and out of Briscoe Field, which currently serves only coporate jets and small commercial aircraft.

Commissioner John Heard, who is scheduled to introduce the resolution, opposes allowing large passenger planes into the airport.

MARTA to Refund Passengers for Snowstorm Shutdown

MARTA to Refund Passengers for Snowstorm Shutdown

 

ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta's public transit system is offering refunds to passengers who lost money when a winter storm stopped bus service.

MARTA officials said passengers who can prove they lost prepaid bus fares during a two-day shutdown of bus service on Jan. 10-11 will be eligible for a two-day unlimited ride pass. 

MARTA spokeswoman Ryland McClendon told WSB-TV that the transit agency apologizes for the inconvenience. She said bus service was halted because authorities believed the roads were too dangerous. Bus service was not fully restored for another five days.

Trantavis Wheeler said he paid $17 for a weekly pass, but could only ride the bus for a single day before the storm hit. He wants a bigger refund since buses in his neighborhood were not running for days.

20 years of Atlanta's "Voice for Better Biking"

20 years of Atlanta's "Voice for Better Biking"

Atlanta, GA--  (submitted by Atlanta Bicycle Coalition)

2011 marks our 20th anniversary as "Your Voice for Better Biking." For two decades, we've worked to shift the bicycling landscape of our city to represent the growing number of everyday people who are using a bicycle for transportation, fitness, and/or recreation.

We're still a long way from where we want to be, but with the help of countless members, volunteers, staff, and partners, we continue to pave the way to a bike-friendly Atlanta.

Over the years we've had our wins (bikes on MARTA, bike parking during and after the 1996 Olympics, the Connect Atlanta Plan, Atlanta Streets Alive) and our losses (traffic calming projects that replaced formerly bikable space with curb extensions, most notably).
