Dear Mr. Sweat:

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority is organizing a trip to Montreal

and Toronto to see their rapid transit operations. The chartered flight will leave
Atlanta for Montreal on Wednesday, June 12, go to Toronto that night, and leave
Toronto Thursday, June 13, to return to Atlanta, (Abbreviated itinerary is attached.)

Since MARTA is not able to pay for such a trip, each person who accepts the invita-
tion to go will bear his own expenses, The cost of the trip, including contingency
allowance, will be $180.00 excluding hotel charges other than room, breakfast and

lunch Thursday, or any personal expenditures, Any overage will be returned to you,

Invitations are being extended to about 300 governmental and business leaders, in-
cluding Atlanta's Mayor, Vice-Mayor, and aldermen; the Commissioners of Clayton,
DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett Counties; all mayors in the four counties; members of the
Atlanta Area Transportation Study Policy Committee; presidents, executive officers,
and others in the Chambers of Commerce; the Governor, Lt. Governor, Speaker of the
House, and other state officials; news media, and other individuals who have expressed
interest in such a trip. If you know of someone not in these categories who should

be invited, please let me know immediately, and this same invitation will go to

those you suggest.

Reservations for the trip will be made on a first-come, first served basis for the
86 seats available,

I hope you will make your reservation promptly. Your check for $180.00 made out to
MARTA for the Montreal-Toronto Trip should be in our office as soon as possible,
This trip will enable you and others who will play a leading role in the development
of rapid transit in Atlanta to see first hand two modern rapid transit systems and
what they have done and are doing for their communities, and to do so at minimum

I hope you will plan to make this trip.

‘ Sincerely,
