MARTA is adding additional service with I-85 collapse, both train and bus.
"Savior" is term used.http://www.11alive.com/news/local/will- ... /427138323
MARTA promised increased rail services and additional representatives. "For example, from the North Springs area, you get on the train abut every 8 to 10 minutes and that train will get you downtown in about 20 minutes or so," said Keith Parker, MARTA GM/CEO. Parker said extra services will also run through the weekend and they will reassess services for Monday.
GRTA Xpress, a regional commuter coach service with 33 routes in 12 Metro Atlanta counties, will also play a vital role in the I-85 workaround. They will continue to run scheduled service with detours, but they're also encouraging ride MARTA or telework. They're acting as a vital bridge between commuter parking lots and MARTA stations. They've added additional buses from the Hamilton Mill and Sugarloaf Mills park-and-rides and the Doraville MARTA station.
