MARTA will take over the Atlanta Streetcar next year. BOB ANDRES/BANDRES@AJC.COMThe Atlanta City Council has approved plans to turn the city’s troubled streetcar line over to MARTA next year. On Monday the council approved an ordinance authorizing Mayor Kasim Reed to transfer all Atlanta Streetcar operations, staffing, maintenance and other functions. The $99 million streetcar opened in December 2014 amid sky-high expectations.
Atlanta unveiled a stretch of “smart” road Thursday that could help usher in an era of driverless cars and transform the city’s transportation infrastructure. The North Avenue Smart Corridor Project – which stretches from the Coca-Cola headquarters and Georgia Tech to the Ponce City Market – includes adaptive traffic signals, high-definition cameras and other technology that advocates say will improve safety and speed traffic on a busy east-west street.
The I-75 South Metro Express Lanes usually accommodate northbound traffic in the morning and southbound traffic in the afternoon. The I-75 South Metro Express Lanes in Clayton and Henry counties are still accommodating southbound traffic only as Florida residents continue to return home after fleeing Hurricane Irma. The 12 miles of reversible toll lanes, which opened in January, usually carry northbound traffic into Atlanta in the morning and southbound out of the city in the afternoon.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
