It will be another busy weekend in Atlanta with everything from football to music happening downtown and the Fall Home Show happening at Cobb Galleria.

Don’t miss a beat when you take MARTA to Music Midtown and other great events this weekend. For only $2 each way (plus a 50 cent charge to purchase a temporary Breeze ticket or a $1 charge for a permanent Breeze card) MARTA will be the easiest and most affordable way to travel to this weekend’s concerts, football games and fireworks display.

Here’s a tip: purchase a roundtrip fare at the start of your trip to avoid long lines on the return.  MARTA will be operating longer trains and is prepared to run them more often, as needed.  

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 the station in order to receive free daily parking.  Please note that MARTA has some designated lots which charge a fee. 

Some buses will be rerouted to accommodate some of these events.  These routes are listed below.
