Atlanta, GA-- Due to the implementation of service changes this Saturday, MARTA is advising customers traveling on the system this weekend to plan ahead. MARTA is prepared to provide convenient service to the Midtown Festival of the Arts, football games and other activities; however, customers should be aware of several changes that could affect their trips. Weekend rail service will now begin at 6 a.m. rather than 4:45 a.m., and trains will operate every 20 minutes on all lines.
In addition, due to employee layoffs as a result of the budget cuts this fiscal year, fewer station agents will be available to assist customers. Patrons are encouraged to visit www.itsmarta.com or call 404-848-5000 to plan their trip prior to arriving at a station.
