Riding MARTA: Bus Route 19
The following eight (8) routes are proposed to be modified on April 11, 2020:
Route 8 – North Druid Hills Road [ MAP ]
At the request of public stakeholders, Route 8 is proposed to operate via Derrydown Way, E. Freeman Street
and Sams Street, to and from Avondale Station. The segment along Sams Street, (south of E. Freeman Street)
and Talley Street is proposed to be discontinued.
Route 79 – Sylvan Hills [ MAP ]
To improve operational efficiency and schedule reliability, Route 79 is proposed to assume the Martel Homes
routing currently operated by Route 192. Segments along Sylvan Road between Avon Avenue and Murphy
Avenue, Murphy Avenue to Avon Avenue and Jefferson Park routing is proposed to be discontinued due to low
utilization. This proposed modification will avoid delays associated with the railroad crossing.
Route 82 – Camp Creek / South Fulton Parkway [ MAP ]
The direct service inside the Georgia Department of Revenue office park is proposed to be discontinued due to
low utilization. Instead, service will be provided at the bus stop in front of the office park on Welcome All Road.
Route 114 – Columbia Drive [ MAP ]
At the request of public stakeholders, Route 114 is proposed to operate via Commerce Drive and E. College
Avenue to Avondale Station. The segments along Sams Street (south of E. Freeman Street) and Talley Street
are proposed to be discontinued.
Route 124 – Pleasantdale Road [ MAP ]
The downtown Tucker routing along Main Street is proposed to be discontinued. Instead, Route 124 is proposed
to continue south on Fellowship Road and east on Lawrenceville Highway. Additionally, alternating inbound and
outbound trips to Dawson Boulevard will be provided daily from start to the end of service. This proposed
modification will improve operational efficiency and schedule reliability allowing buses to avoid delays associated
with the railroad crossing on Main Street.
Route 126 – Chamblee - Tucker Road [ MAP ]
Route 126 is proposed to operate to/from Chamblee Station utilizing current routing to a new end of line on
Ranchwood Drive via Parklake Drive and Lavista Road. The Flowers Road S loop, Presidential Parkway loop
and the Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation loop is proposed to be discontinued due to low utilization.
This proposed modification will improve operational efficiency.
Route 192 – Old Dixie / Tara Boulevard [ MAP ]
Route 192 is proposed to operate via Norman Berry Drive, R.N. Martin Street, Irene Kidd Parkway and Main
Street to East Point Station. This proposed modification is to ease peak-hour bus crowding and improve
Route 295 – Metropolitan Campus Express [ MAP ]
Route 295 is proposed to operate from Oakland City Station instead of Lakewood Station. The segments along
Lee Street, Main Street, Arthur B. Langford Jr. Parkway (GA -166), Perkerson Road, Langston Drive, and
Metropolitan Parkway to Casplan Street is proposed to be discontinued. This modification will add new mid-day
service to the colleges and improve operational efficiency.
