PARTIAL RED LINE SUSPENSION FEB. 17-22 FOR TRACK REPLACEMENT WORK
ATLANTA – The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) will suspend rail
service south of Medical Center Station from Friday, Feb. 17 at 9 p.m. through
the end of service Wednesday, Feb. 22 for track replacement work. Reduced frequency Red Line service to the
airport resumes Thursday, Feb. 23, with full service restored Sunday, Feb. 26.
Red Line service north of Medical Center, as well as rail service on the Gold, Blue, and Green Lines will operate normally.
To assist customers, free bus shuttles will run continuously between Medical Center, Buckhead, and Lenox Stations, and a $10 Uber or Lyft voucher will be available through MARTAConnect. Details on how and when to download the voucher will be provided as the project date nears.
MARTA is investing approximately $225 million in State of Good Repair work on its heavy rail lines to enhance the safety of the rail system, reduce train delays, and improve customer experience. The Track Replacement Program is a multi-year effort to replace
track and switches throughout the rail system.
