    Any of you have experienced their service? I'm planning to go to California and I wonder if they could be of any good during my trip. Let me know people! :)

    Um, well since they only run in the Metro Atlanta area, I'm not sure how much use they will be to you, but if you're planning on staying outside of Metro Atlanta and commuting in to catch an intercity bus or see the sights, they could work well, but remember they only run during rushhour and primarily in the peak direction.

    If GRTA is running in California, Georgia is more messed up than we originally thought! :D

    MattW is very correct. But with the loss of the T-SPLOST, I can't remember but I think they indicated that some of the funds for GRTA may be affected...

    I only know of Greyhounds working in California, not GRTA. I only remember ever seeing the regular city bus transportation and..that's it.

    LOL..obviously the inital poster was a little misguided when he/she posted about using GRTA in California. However, I have often wondered what people think about this service in Georgia. Does it make sense to have a service that only runs during certain hours in certain directions and only to get you to the next transportation solution? Should this be a service that is expanded to be more comprehensive? Or should it be eliminated?

    GO Transit runs bus service all day, every day between across the Greater Toronto Area, including rail service between Toronto and suburban cities. Take a good look, they are the very model system that GRTA needs to emulate.

    And just to inspire a little confidence to inspire the MMPT:

    Hey, thanks Swaugh. I know that you posted this awhile back, but I am just now getting back around to this site...too much to do and too little time to get it done, lol. It's the story of my life. Anyway, this is great information. I will be passing it on to a few of my friends who will be heading down that way for a business conference.
