MARTA's train and bus schedules for Music Midtown

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

As Atlanta braces for more than 100,000 people taking part in a jam-packed weekend with outdoor concerts, college football, the PGA Tour and more, Atlanta police is calling event-goers to take MARTA buses, trains and shuttles when possible.

Fewer vehicles on the roads mean, of course, less traffic and fewer traffic jams; in addition to fewer parking hassles.

Taking MARTA costs $2.50 each way (plus a $1 charge for a new Breeze card). Train and bus riders headed for Piedmont Park should use the Midtown and Arts Center stations on the Red and Gold rail lines as their destinations.

MARTA encourages riders to purchase a round-trip fare at the start of their trip to avoid long lines on their return. One Breeze card per person and each rider must tap their card at the entrance gates to enter and exit stations.

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 ticket at machines inside of the Lindbergh Center Station in order to receive free daily parking. 

Please note that MARTA has some designated lots which charge a fee.

On Friday, Sept. 20, Red and Gold Line trains will run every 15 minutes until patrons are cleared from Piedmont Park after concerts end for the evening. Train service will be every 7-and-a-half minutes from Lindbergh Center to Airport Stations. Red Line service will run continuously from North Springs southbound to the Airport until after the concerts end.

MARTA will provide regularly scheduled weekday Blue and Green Line service on Friday, Sept. 20, with trains running 15 minutes until 7 p.m. After 7 p.m., Blue and Green Line trains will run every 20 minutes. Green Line trains will travel only between Bankhead and Vine City Stations after 7 p.m.

On the busiest day of the festival, Saturday, Sept. 21, MARTA will run a weekend schedule, with frequencies of every 20 minutes on the Red and Gold Lines. Trains will run every 10 minutes from Lindbergh Center Station to the Airport.

The Red Line will run from North Springs south to the Airport until after the festival, which ends at 11 p.m., is cleared from Piedmont Park.

At Brookhaven station, all trains will board on the northbound platform.

On Sept. 21. Blue and Green Line trains will run on a 20-minute schedule. Green Line trains will travel only between Bankhead and King Memorial.
                                                                
On Saturday at West Lake and H.E. Holmes, all trains will board on the Westbound  platform. 

Because of the closure of 10th Street from Friday, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. until midnight on Sunday, Bus Routes 27, 36 and 99 will be rerouted. MARTA will otherwise operate a regular weekend bus schedule.
