MARTA doesn't have quiet cars and people have a right to communicate. Seriously, either make your own local noise, or just ignore it. The train itself is a good deal louder than talking anyways, especially in the tunnels.

If you don't like their conversation, join it. Make it more interesting!

I have T mobile Service and I've always been able to use my phone at Peachtree Center station and most tunnels with no problem for years the only stations where I have absolutely no service is Decatur train station and Sandy Springs train station

You do know that MARTA has a code of conduct, and that unreasonably loud behavior is explicitly forbidden, right? My right to enjoy a civil transit ride exceeds your right to talk as loud as you feel like.

You never said anything about it being unreasonably loud, you just said:

Not one thing there indicates the people you speak of are being unreasonably loud, just that you don't like it.

I think I touched a nerve.

You can always get up and move to the next car, but loud talkers are very annoying.

MARTA to debut articulated ‘bendy’ buses | Atlanta Intown

Quote:
MARTA will debut its new articulated ”bendy” buses at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, May 23, at 10 a.m. at the Five Points MARTA Station.
In addition to these 18, MARTA has budgeted buying more buses, though I'm not sure if they're all the articulated ones, or more of the 40ft Xcelcior buses that MARTA has been updating its fleet with.

About time. Just 18? I guess, it will still increase capacity though.

Perhaps that's just a starter set.
