Thank you for your question about the commute to Atlanta. It totally depends on your schedule. I know someone that travels downtown Monday through Friday and it takes them about 35 minutes door to door. Please know they choose to avoid the traffic and leave home around 6:15 a.m. In the evening, it takes them about 45 minutes to return home when they leave at 5:00 p.m.

SR 400 is still the better alternative to I-75 or I-85 because you do not have all the tractor-trailers to deal with.

Please feel free to contact me if I may assist you with other information about Alpharetta living.

Thank you Hank for your answer. When I accepted the offer in Ellenwood I thought that I can still live in Alpharetta or in West Cobb. I have 4 kids and very good schools and safe neighborhood are a must. However, since I won't be able to easily commute from Alpharetta to Ellenwood, I just made up my mid now to just stay where I am now, in Northern VA.

Thank you Hanks for you feedback

It's next to impossible to live in Georgia without a vehicle. It just wasn't built that way. It's getting better, as Jeanette mentioned, there are other places inside the city that offer this.

That being said, once they added the marta train it made it infinitely easier to get to downtown if planned right. Most people COULD get around in Atlanta Proper without a car, but it would be difficult. In Alpharetta, it just wouldn't be plausible.
