Three times a year, MARTA officials assess traffic patterns and ask for public input to find out where riders want to go and when. Transit officials then take all that data and tinker with bus routes to make the most of limited resources.
MARTA riders will see the fruits of transit officials' labor when more than 15 route modifications will take effect on Dec. 5.
After the jump, a MARTA-provided chart that lists the modified routes, days affected, and description of what to expect. CL did not try to confirm if bus drivers asked God to bless these changes or not.
Mark your calendars and enjoy!
MARTA also says the following routes will see minor adjustments. The transit agency suggests riders refer to bus timetables for specifics.
Weekday: Routes - 2, 5, 8, 32, 34, 45, 53, 66, 69, 71, 74, 75, 81, 82, 83, 88, 89, 93, 95, 96, 117, 118, 120, 121, 125, 140, 155, 172, 186, 193

I agree there should be something else there to encourage foot traffic, so people will…
"He caught unmerciful hell from the right over spending" Oh, my sides. How they ache…
Deal will skate. You heard it here first.
On second thought, the only thing that keeps Atlanta from being perfect is that it's…
"Thank goodness the FDA is doing something about this problem!"
Cosign...ditto...hell yeah, etc.
