Vote on Cobb Bus Rapid Transit system could be delayed

COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- Cobb County Commission Chairman Tim Lee -- long a proponent of creating a Bus Rapid Transit system in Cobb -- says his plan to bring Bus Rapid Transit up for a vote in 2016 might not happen.

Lee says he won't move forward on his proposal to create the system without support from commissioners.

County commissioners have had mixed feelings on the bus system.

The system was proposed in 2012 after a study recommended a bus line to run north and south along Cobb Parkway and connect Kennesaw State University and Midtown Atlanta. Lee said earlier this year the proposed bus line could be expanded to include east/west routes.

The expanded version of the BRT is estimated to cost $700 million, up from the original proposal's projected $500 million cost.
