On Monday, the Atlanta City Council introduced a resolution to spur AMTRAK investment in the Gulch.

The resolution, 22-R-3645, notes the value of AMTRAK expansion in the city “as a part of the Gulch development,” and invites AMTRAK to “publicly present, detail, and answer questions about its vision for expanded passenger rail, to include any plans for new routes, service facilities, and stations throughout the metro area.”

It’s an important move by the new council to access federal funds to redevelop the Gulch. Georgia is set to receive $1.4B over the next five years for public transportation.
