Commuters will have more choices during the reconstruction project that will close a portion of Business 40 beginning this fall.
Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation
Beginning this weekend, Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation—better known as PART—is expanding its service to include Saturdays.
The Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation, or PART, depends mostly on a 5 percent tax on rental cars for a big chunk of its funding. And as business travel declined during the recession, so did the agency's revenues. From 2008 to 2010, PART's rental tax revenue dropped by about $1 million.
