For years, thousands have packed out MARTA trains drenched in colorful pride on the second or third Sunday in October. They exit the train at Civic Center Station and line up in anticipation of parading down Peachtree Street. There’s something about it that makes us feel a little nostalgic; maybe it’s the tease of a Fall breeze or banding together with our neighbors celebrating equality. At MARTA, our culture is as rich and diverse as the communities we serve. We are working to create an environment that is inclusive, where all are treated with respect and dignity.
We’ll miss getting the opportunity to take you to the parade and festival this year, but the next time you ride remember to #RidewithPride.
