Arterial Rapid Transit (ART) is a new service type MARTA is implementing in the Atlanta Region. This type of service is used to improve bus operations in a corridor by providing frequent service in highly travelled corridors like Buford Highway (Route 39), MARTA’s busiest bus route. This project will connect to the Lindbergh MARTA rail station on the south and the Doraville MARTA rail station to the north.
MARTA is currently developing conceptual station designs for Buford Highway, meeting with key stakeholders and the public and coordinating with the Georgia Department of Transportation. Because Buford Highway is a state route, MARTA and GDOT will work together on any changes to the roadway, especially in relation to programming the traffic signals to facilitate bus operations.
The proposed project is intended to be completed by the end of 2024.
