The signs are laminated and secured using zip ties. The signs are not permanent and will be changed if routes are changed.

I'm wondering if MARTA is going to have any beef with this, or if they'll just kinda let it happen until it becomes more of a problem than a solution (if it ever does that is). Who knows, maybe this'll be enough of a show of support to get MARTA to actually add signs at all?

Just making sure! I love public enthusiasm when it comes to improving aspects of their city, just as long as those entities they're improving are aware and on board.

Anyone got a pic of one of the signs?

Please follow the link. It is just starting up, but the first program is the bus stop timetables. If you adopt a bus stop, they will send you a free weather resistant timetable to install.

Found one! That's really not bad, I can dig it. There's definitely a need for more professional effort on MARTA's part, but that's in no way putting these down, and they make a great place-holder until (if...) MARTA can put their own versions up.

We really need an Marta Army Effort when it Comes to Bus Shelters in Clayton County because 4 to 5 Shelters and benches when it's over 300 Clayton Bus Stops is Ridiculous... People are Tierd of standing out in the Elements and it just looks like Marta and Clayton are dragging their Feet on the issue. Riverdale Rd Doesnt have the 1st Shelter and there are Crowds of people just standing everywhere Catching buses. The 196 Should at least have 20 Shelters by now. The route is Too Busy not to!!!
