MARTA Reach

Getting you where you need to go, faster!
Try the pilot program now through August 31, 2022!

MARTA and Georgia Tech are partnering on a 6-month pilot of a new on-demand rideshare service, connecting riders the region to MARTA bus and rail service. This pilot is meant to test how on-demand shuttles can be used to make it easier and faster for our riders to get to and from their destinations using MARTA. We’re calling this program: MARTA Reach. As MARTA explores new options with our NextGen Bus project, we’re using this pilot to learn how on-demand service can work to supplement and expand the reach of our buses and trains. MARTA Reach is meant to work with our existing services and will help minimize waiting and walking.

How Does It Work?

MARTA Reach is a first-mile/last-mile service meant to connect riders to and from MARTA bus and rail. The service will run from 6:00am – 7:00pm, Monday – Friday. The wait time for a vehicle will be approximately 15 minutes. Depending on time of day, traffic, and road closures.

MARTA Reach works via ridesharing, meaning during your trip other passengers may be picked up or dropped off.

Face masks are required by all passengers on all MARTA vehicles, including MARTA Reach shuttles. Shuttle drivers will also be wearing face masks, and vehicles will be cleaned often to ensure safety.

Shuttles are wheelchair and stroller accessible. At this time, bikes are not allowed on MARTA Reach vehicles.
