    * Cause of death unrelated to COVID-19


    • Employees identified as having close contact (above) are notified and sent home for quarantine/monitoring of symptoms under the care of their personal healthcare provider.
    • MARTA only reports confirmed cases involving our employees. Contractors and members of the general public are not included in MARTA's public reporting of COVID-19 cases. 
    • For MARTA's reporting purposes, a case is considered "confirmed" upon receipt of documentation from public health authorities or an employee's medical provider. 
  • COVID19 Ridership Monitoring

    The table below shows daily updates on PRELIMINARY rail and bus ridership starting March 2, 2020. This information is subject to re-statement as late data emerges and as we seek the best method to measure ridership in a rapidly-changing situation. MARTA reserves the right to restate this data, and the information is not suitable for auditing or financial reporting purposes.
