Atlanta, Georgia, will host the 1996 Olympic Games and provide a range of mass transit options to spectators that descend on the city. Atlanta is borrowing 2,000 buses from transit agencies around the country to nearly double the size of the fleet normally operated by the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA). High occupancy vehicle lanes will convey visitors to suburban venues and MARTA's 51.5 km (32 mi) of heavy rail will carry twice the system's normal workday passenger load of 200,000. This article lays out the entire Olympic Transportation System plan, which centers on trains, buses, and pedestrian corridors. Because parking in the city will be reserved for the Olympic "family," satellite parking plans are discussed as well.
