Another MARTA guy!

Ford is going to be just the tonic for this traditionally beleaguered agency.

I am so far a fan of Mr. Ford, but let's not kid ourselves...MARTA today is not exactly the poster example of a well run transit agency

How is Hampton Roads Transit?  The guy hired for finance was their CFO and they recently completed a LRT starter line:

much better to build beltways and highways, one supposes?

And compared to JTA, MARTA would be a quantum leap up.

that's comical....yes, they have heavy rail...but the system is falling apart, they can't get more money, and they have no support outside the city itself.

I just wish that Ford would hire some people from the "real big cities" of the Northeast and West Coast.
He may turn out to be just what we need in a CEO, but I'll reserve judgment for a year or two.

And with that in mind, it's been almost two years since Alvin Brown became mayor. May I suggest that MJ do an article. (call it a midterm assessment if you will)

What were his successes?

What were his failures?

What's the status of his unfinished business?

What do the people of Jacksonville think of him?

What are his chances (as of right now and the next few months) to be reelected?

and how would you describe our commuter rail system, tufsu?

I would describe our commuter rail system the same as I would in Atlanta...non-existent

You do know that MARTA isn't commuter rail right?
