MARTA's next progressive move could be to begin the process of swapping out its entire fleet of train cars for more versatile vehicles that can traverse city streets and other nontraditional routes.

The transit agency is aiming to retire all of its aging train cars by 2026 and incorporate a new fleet that can double as streetcars and travel freight rails, which could be key for branching the system into Clayton County. Sounds ambitious.

"The remake of Ormond-Grant Park is a testament to the results volunteers in Atlanta can achieve when they pitch in and work together on a shared vision, accord...ing to Atlanta City Councilmember Carla Smith, who represents the area.

“We’re talking about an old playground, which actually was dangerous, and totally rehabilitating it,” Smith said Thursday. “It’s the personality of Grant Park. We’re all about rehabbing, and the park is beautiful.”

Residents didn’t raise all the money to refurbish the 1.3 acre park. Additional support came from Atlanta, a grant from Park Pride, and a federal Community Development Block Grant."
