Thank you for visiting MARTA's new web based trip planning tool My Commute Trip Planner. This web based tool provides you with all the tools necessary to plan a trip using MARTA.
My Commute Trip Planner allows you to build an itinerary by selecting start and end locations, travel dates and times. Additional features include schedule look up, walking directions, maps and next bus information. You will notice a feature that refers to bus stop numbers. Currently numbers are only found on the bus schedules within My Commute Trip Planner.
STOPS AND STOP NUMBERS: Stops are designated bus and rail pickup/drop off places. Stops are numbered for ease of identification. Don’t worry if you do not know your stop number, we can help you find a stop just by using an address or landmark. Knowing your stop number using this website or our new phone based information system will help find the time the next bus arrives
We encourage and welcome feedback on your experience using My Commute Trip Planner. Please provide us with your comments so that we may constantly update and enhance this new resource for our website or soon, using our new phone-based information system.

Tip:If you experience difficulty getting the computer to understand your address or intersection entered, try street suffixes (e.g. St., Ave., Pl) and/or directional indicators (i.e. N, S, E, W). You must omit unit numbers. If you do not know the name of the landmark you are seeking, select a category from the POPULAR LOCATIONS drop-down list, highlight the location and proceed.
Tip:Trip Planning assumes that your request is made for today and/or by a time close to the current time. Click on the calendar icon to change the date if you plan to travel beyond today's date (and if changing the date manually, use prescribed format of mm-dd-yyyy).

(Some trips include a "transfer" where you stay on the same vehicle, meaning that during your trip one bus route turns into another bus route with little, if any, time between.)
TRIP PLANNER STEP "3" - Itinerary Details
Trip Planner shows the details of your trip including destination signs, stops, departure/arrival information for each leg of your trip (printing option available for this page for reference). A map will show your departure point and destination including the path you will travel to your final destination. Tools are available to left of the map to customize your view.
To look up a route schedule:
Tip: Date selection is important as levels of service can differ from day to day. For example, a trip valid on a given Friday may not be available Monday to Thursday, or on a future Friday after a quarterly service change.
Schedule information is displayed according to the selection made:
Tip: Timing points (exact scheduled times) are provided to maintain schedule accuracy. Stops between timing points are estimated based on normal service conditions. Stop information includes the stop number. Stop numbers are being introduced gradually. You may also see the stop number in Trip Planning maps and in the Next Bus tool.
Wheelchair accessibility and Bike Rack availability depend on the vehicle being used as well as the stop accommodating this level of service. Therefore, icons indicating "accessibility" are displayed for:
Please be sure to cross-reference these carefully if you require this level of service. If there is NO indicating icon for either the trip or stop in question, then this level of service is not available.Note: Occasionally vehicles that normally provide wheelchair/bike rack service need to be replaced with vehicles not equipped for these services.
To view the complete schedule may require scrolling up/down and left/right. Because of this, your Stop and Trip information can become lost in the viewable region of your browser. By holding your mouse over any of the times, you will see a 'tool-tip' providing the Bus Stop location and the Destination sign shown on the front of the Bus.
Previewing a printout for each schedule using the "Print" options utility. Your schedule will automatically adjust itself to fit within your selected page width (Portrait or Landscape), and adjust to the number of required pages. If your browser is displaying "All Stops", the schedule you print will adjust automatically to display only the timing points for your route and direction.
This tool simply finds times for the next few buses at your stop.
Note: Stop numbers are being introduced gradually, and will soon appear on all bus stops. You may also see the stop numbers in the Schedules section or within the map when Planning a Trip.
