Take MARTA To Enjoy Labor Day Activities

Staff Report From Metro Atlanta CEO

Thursday, August 29th, 2019

Atlanta is hosting a week of Labor Day activities, including sporting events, festivals, parades, and Dragon Con. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) is a safe, affordable way to travel to the events, and avoid sitting in traffic.

Take MARTA to the following Labor Day events:

Thursday, Aug. 29 – Monday, Sept. 2 – Dragon Con – Downtown Atlanta

Friday, Aug. 30 – Sunday, Sept. 1 – Decatur Book Festival

Saturday, Aug. 31 – Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game / Alabama vs. Duke – Mercedes-Benz Stadium

Know before you go:

Be mindful of Dragon Con costumes when boarding trains and do not block doors from closing.

On Saturday, Aug. 31, MARTA Transit Ambassadors and additional Breeze card agents will be deployed throughout the system to assist customers.

Due to work at Peachtree Center Station, two escalators at the south end of the platform are out of service and a large generator is located at Peachtree and Ellis Streets.

Allow extra travel time, as rail stations and trains may be crowded.

Buy a round-trip ticket to avoid long lines on your return.

No sharing fares. One Breeze card per rider.

Visit  www.itsmarta.com/parking for parking availability, keeping in mind parking lots at end-of-line stations fill up quickly.
