MARTA Trips to Airport Taking Longer This Weekend

The transit service is doing track work through Sunday, so rail line customers need to transfer trains at Lindbergh Station. Sandy Springs train riders are affected.

 

Heading to the airport this weekend via MARTA? You'd better leave even earlier. The transit line has changed rail service schedules through Sunday to accommodate scheduled track work. And if you are waiting for someone at North Springs station arriving from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, expect them to be later than usual.

"Customers traveling this weekend are advised to please allow extra time for their trip," MARTA's Cara Hodgson said in a news release.

Red Line trains will only operate between North Springs and Lindbergh; therefore, service between Lindbergh and Airport Stations will be running at a reduced frequency – every 20 minutes.

Customers traveling from North Springs will need to transfer to a Gold Line train at Lindbergh Station to continue southbound.

Customers traveling northbound from the Airport will need board a Gold Line train and transfer to a Red Line train at Lindbergh Station to continue to North Springs Station.  

At Lindbergh Station, all trains will board on the southbound platform.

On Saturday and Sunday, there will be no daytime single tracking on the Blue and Green Lines.

For additional information, please contact MARTA Customer Information at 404-848-5000 (Open weekends from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or visit www.itsmarta.com. Customers can also sign-up to receive service alerts on their email, phone or PDA.
