Georgia Regional Transportation Authority

The Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) is a state-level authority that addresses mobility and air quality in metro Atlanta.  In 2017, GRTA and State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) jointly provide the services of both state authorities.  As such, all functions for both authorities are provided by the staff and leadership of SRTA.

GRTA’s jurisdiction encompasses 13 Georgia counties: Cherokee, Clayton, Coweta, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Paulding, and Rockdale.  Under state law and via executive order, GRTA approves the allocation of state and federal transportation resources in metro Atlanta via the Atlanta Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), the federally-required planning process that allocates funds to the highest-priority, near-term transportation projects.  Additionally, GRTA is responsible for evaluating all Developments of Regional Impact (DRIs) within its jurisdiction for their impacts on the surrounding transportation infrastructure.

The GRTA Board of Directors also serves as a transit advisory board to SRTA regarding the Xpress Commuter Coach Service.
