Perplexed about MARTA's service cuts scheduled to take effect at the end of September? You might want to attend one of the transit agency's six upcoming public meetings about the changes.

MARTA's board in June approved a laundry list of cuts and changes to fill a nearly $70 million shortfall.

Upcoming modifications include eliminated bus routes, increased prices for some monthly and Mobility passes, and reductions in the number of station agents. More than 734 employee positions — including 300 warm bodies — were eliminated to fill the budget hole.

Details about the meetings are pasted after the jump.
