MARTA routes closing for Georgia Dome implosion

- If you're planning on taking MARTA on Monday you may have some changes on your route thanks to the Georgia Dome implosion.

MARTA said that it will be suspending normal rail service west of the Five Points Station on Monday to ensure the safety and well-being of its customers.

The suspension will start at the beginning of service and will continue until MARTA can confirm that trains can operate safely.

For that time, the customers who use the rail service can use three different shuttle bus systems to connect to and from the Five Points station, starting at 4:30 a.m:

  • A Green bus service, which will serve the Bankhead and Ashby stations with a transfer stop for the Blue Line on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive NW
  • A Blue bus service which will serve the H.E. Holmes and West stations with a transfer stop for the Green Line at the same location as above.
  • A Purple shuttle bus which will act as an express from H.E. Holmes station to Five Points.

Both the Vine City and the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center stations will be closed until after the Georgia Dome's implosion.

MARTA said Red and Gold line services will run normally.

Bus route 94 will also be altered to avoid the Georgia Dome. You can find all the details of the route's changes here.
