Cobb County, through the Connect Cobb study, conducted an Alternatives Analysis to investigate transit options and their impact on mobility, livability and connectivity in the Northwest Corridor, defined here as US 41 and I-75. The Northwest Corridor is one of the most congested areas in the metropolitan region. With over 675,000 residents in Cobb County, US 41 and I-75 experience heavy traffic and delays on a daily basis. Nearly 40% of Cobb residents now work in Cobb County, with a large percentage beginning or ending their trips along US 41.

The purpose of the Connect Cobb is to develop a locally preferred alternative (LPA) that identifies a high capacity transit system best suited for the corridor. The selection of the LPA will involve analyzing several types of fixed guideway transit including light rail, bus rapid transit (BRT) and dedicated busway. In conjunction with the study, land use, economic development, and redevelopment opportunities will be looked at with emphasis on transit oriented development and transit station area planning. To complement the technical components of the AA, a robust public involvement program will be implemented to ensure community and stakeholder involvement.
The results of the Alternatives Analysis and the recommended Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) are now available.

|CCT Survey||University Survey|
|The first is a Transit Rider outreach survey that focused on getting input from current transit riders in Cobb County.||The second is an online survey distributed to colleges and universities in the Connect Cobb study area in order to collect feedback regarding how students use the I-75 and US 41 corridors.|
|Initiated in August 2011, the Connect Cobb study will progress at a fast pace and is anticipated to conclude in summer of 2012.||
