Atlanta transit is horrible.

People, think before you post nonsense!

Its not terrible to me I only go dunwoody downtown and buckhead works for me. But its funny how everyone wants this grand old train service. And even if marta ran 24 hours and had more lines poeple will still be in there cars driving

Some folks won't ever be satisfied with anything...is MARTA perfect? No. Is MARTA better than transit offered in most cities? Yes.

Yep...MARTA stops running from 1:00 am to 5:00 am. I think they tried 24 hour service in the past and it wasn't cost effective.

DJ, the airport train leaves @ 4:45, give or take. When I get off work, I have to make sure, I make it upstairs by 4:40 or I'm ass out!

MARTA is not that bad it takes me where I need to go 45 minute trip from southern Riverdale(Ctran) to GSU on the MARTA train maybe the buses needed to be expanded and maybe a larger transit system but its good where it is now
