***UPDATE***

MARTA RAIL, MOBILITY SERVICE UP AND RUNNING

Bus Service Experiencing Delays Due to Road Closures, Fallen Trees

ATLANTA—The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) resumed all transit service on Tuesday, Sept. 12, ahead of the morning commute with limited operations. Rail and Mobility services are currently running on the standard weekday schedule. With extensive road closures throughout metro Atlanta, MARTA bus service has been greatly affected across the service area.  

Bus routes currently not in operation, or are experiencing roadway difficulties, include Routes  2, 8, 16, 19, 24, 27, 55, 67, 71, 81, 82, 84, 93, 95, 117, 121, 125, 126, 170, 172, 178, 181 and 183. Multiple roadways across metropolitan Atlanta are impassable due to post storm conditions, including downed trees and power lines, forcing bus operators to find alternate routes. 

Bus routes that are currently in operation are Routes 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 12, 13, 15, 21, 30, 32, 33, 36, 37, 39, 47, 49, 50, 51, 53, 56, 58, 60, 66, 68, 73, 74, 75, 78, 79, 86, 87, 89, 99, 107, 110, 111, 114, 115, 116, 119, 120, 123, 140, 141, 143, 148, 153, 155, 162, 180, 185/85, 186, 189, 191, 193, 194, 195, 196, 201, 800, 823 and 865. Some routes may experience delays due to mandatory re-routes caused by road conditions. 

 All Clayton County bus routes are clear and in operation.   

 “We are continuously monitoring weather and road conditions,” said MARTA GM/CEO Keith Parker. “We are working to phase in Tuesday's bus service so we can safely get our customers to their destinations. Many of our routes are blocked or unsafe for travel. We are asking our customers to bear with us as we work to increase service as roadways reopen."  

Additionally, MARTA will provide all current, registered Breeze Card, pass holders with a one-day credit to as reimbursement for Monday’s service suspension.
