MARTA offers rides to Final Four weekend events

Posted: Updated:

Are you excited about this weekend but dreading the traffic? MARTA says skip it.

MARTA says that it will have extra trains running to get fan to all of the weekend's big events, which include the Final Four, Bracket Town fan fest, Hawks and Braves games and a three-day free concert series at Centennial Olympic Park.

Additional staff and police will be on hand to help customers, MARTA says.

A one-way trip on MARTA is $2.50. MARTA encourages customers to buy round-trip fare or multiple-day passes at the start of their trips for extra convenience.

Parking for less than 24 hours is free at all of MARTA's daily parking facilities. Customers parking in the decks at Lindbergh Center Station must park in MARTA-designated areas and validate their parking tickets at machines inside Lindbergh Station in order to receive free daily parking.  Note: some designated lots do charge a fee, including lots at Lenox, Brookhaven, Kensington and College Park Stations.   

The last trains will depart Five Points Station in all directions at 1:30 a.m. All rail single-tracking work has been cancelled for the weekend.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
