Single-tracking Schedule Information 

In order to accommodate scheduled track work, MARTA will modify rail service on the Red and Gold Lines on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26, 2013, and customers traveling this weekend are advised to please allow extra time for their trip. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank our customers for their patience as we conduct this work to keep our system operating at its highest level.

Red Line trains will only operate between North Springs and Lindbergh stations; therefore, service between Lindbergh and Airport stations will be running at a reduced frequency – every 20 minutes.  Customers traveling from North Springs station will need to transfer to a Gold Line train at Lindbergh station in order to continue southbound. Customers traveling northbound from the Airport will need to board a Gold Line train and transfer to a Red Line train at Lindbergh station to continue to North Springs station.  

At Five Points, Peachtree and Civic Center rail stations, all trains will board on the northbound platform.

MARTA will not do any daytime single-tracking on the Blue and Green Lines.

MARTA is conducting regularly scheduled track work as part of its Capital Improvement Program to rebuild and upgrade the rail system to enhance the overall safety and reliability of the service.

For additional information, please contact MARTA Customer Information at 404-848-5000 (Open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; weekends from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).  Customers can also sign-up to receive service alerts on their email, phone or PDA by visiting
