MARTA 2040 Project Overview

On-going projects  are one of the ways we help create a better, more connected Atlanta. Whether it’s an improvement to MARTA’s service capacity or an expansion of a mixed-use development, these initiatives aim to connect communities all across Atlanta.

The following are a few of the departments and initiatives behind these projects, as well as their recent endeavors to make Atlanta a more interconnected city:

  • Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Projects

    With the support of our community and the city of Atlanta, we've made transit oriented development, or TOD, a staple of MARTA's efforts throughout the metro area. These developments help promote economic growth and public transit ridership while boosting quality of life for people all across Atlanta.  

  • Capital Projects

    In addition to large-scale development projects and those aimed at improving MARTA’s core services, we also regularly address the needs of the entire MARTA system. This includes projects aimed at enhancing and replacing current amenities, expanding our services and rehabilitating underused or outdated features.

    The following are projects currently underway:

  • Planning Projects

    Regional Planning represents MARTA at regional, state and local authorities and participates in a number of studies and projects throughout the region. It also conducts long-range planning of its own, including: 

    1. Analyzing ridership modeling
    2. Identifying future locations for capital expansion projects
    3. Guiding system expansion projects through various federal funding processes.

    This branch also develops and reviews environmental impact analyses as well as historical and archaeological studies required by state and federal laws.

  • Upcoming Projects

    Atlanta is an expanding city, and the needs of our riders change with every passing year. We're committed to adapting our services to meet those needs in whatever way we can — whether that means adding new routes and rail lines to our transit network or taking on more TOD projects that connect our city's communities.

    As we finalize our plans for future projects and upcoming expansions, we'll add the details to this page along with any publicly available plans.
