An idea to build monorail-like mass transit throughout Henry County was first presented to the general public during a town hall meeting in September 2018, but that proposal will not move further following an investigation by the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The AJC is reporting that Transit X entrepreneur Mike Stanley changed his name in 2014 because of a previous conviction of indecent assault and battery on children under the age of 14. According to Henry County Commissioner Bruce Holmes, “Henry County is no longer considering moving forward with Transit X. We are investigating details related to the company and its owner.”
