This Friday! Come one, come all! We are going to break out the bleach and rubber gloves and are going to try to scrub the urine smell off this train! Its a MARTA Party!
I don't want to hear anything about MARTA being poorly run, all other transit agencies in metro Atlanta do not run on Sundays. This is a group of people who are donating their time to help make MARTA great.

They just so happened to have chosen a transit agency to give their time and efforts to instead of another entity. Given the state of public transportation in the metro, it's not surprising that people would be motivated to help.

Perhaps these guys can start with scrubbing out the urine smell from the trains. Call it boot camp. Get to work Private.
I never smelled pee pee on Marta trains, maybe you are confused with New York subway or the Chicago el?

Operation TimelyTrip
is it permanent or can it be taking or removed?

This place has been missing a certain level of corniness for TOO LONG!

Joined the MARTA Army after hearing them present at TransportationCamp. It's really great to see a crowd effort like this. Looking forward to dropping a sign or two in the projects and near the hotels
