Metro Atlanta’s Growing — and Forsyth County’s an Overachiever
Metro Atlanta is growing — that’s no secret. But by how much? According to a new study, we could possibly add the equivalent of Jacksonville, Florida’s population to our region by 2030.
- Metro Atlanta is projected to gain 1.4 million new residents over the next 15 years
- Forsyth County is the fastest-growing county in the state — and the 11th fastest-growing county in the nation.
- While the Atlanta region is looking at a 25% population jump, Forsyth County’s growth looks like it’ll be 58%!
So how can we make sure there’s enough space on our roads for all our incoming neighbors? Here’s a crazy idea: Share the ride!
Think about it: Our population is growing, but our space is staying the same. If we buddy up on the ride to work (by carpooling, vanpooling, or taking transit) we can free up extra space we need to grow! And luckily, Georgia Commute Options is on hand to get you started. Learn how you can find a ridematch or earn extra cash for sharing the ride to work!
