The workshop is open to potential master development partners and companies that may provide support and ancillary services to a master developer.
The workshop is scheduled for January 5, 2011 at 10:00 am (EST). It will be held in room 401 at One Georgia Center, 600 West Peachtree Street, NW, Atlanta, GA.
At the workshop, Georgia DOT representatives will issue responses to questions submitted in accordance with the guidelines set forth in the Request for Proposals. Questions are to be submitted by noon (EST) on December 17, 2010.

The Atlanta MMPT will serve as the hub for existing and proposed transportation networks serving metro-Atlanta and beyond, including MARTA rail and bus systems, regional express bus systems and the Georgia railroad network. It may also accommodate future transportation, including high speed rail, light rail and streetcar services. In addition to its transportation functions, the MMPT will serve as a catalyst for one of the largest Transit Oriented Development (TOD) projects in the US.
