That’s the question. The answer of course is a high speed, heavy rail system, not light, running between Atlanta and Macon’s airport. Use part of the allocated funding to build the rail and the rest to upgrade the pre-existing, heavy jet capable Macon Airport.
BTW, most studies conclude heavy rail, as opposed to intracity light rail systems, are worthwhile. Put that puppy done the middle of the interstate and you’re good to go.
