We’ve got one. In fact, we have two!
The new Q, MARTA’s first bus rapid transit
service, offers both Express and Limited
service along the congested Memorial Drive
The Q Express runs between MARTA’s Kensington Station and a free 150-car Park-and-Ride lot at Goldsmith Road & Memorial Drive. You can park and ride to work, school, shopping or restaurants
that are served by the Express. The Express only stops twice along the way at North Hairston Road and again at Georgia Perimeter College. Or, you can stay on for the ride to Kensington Station with a free transfer to the train.
The Q Limited also runs north along Memorial Drive from Kensington Station but branches off at North Hairston Road on the way to East Ponce de Leon Avenue. The Q Limited has four stops along
the way in addition the same stops for the Express.
Check the map for details.
While you’re relaxing on the bus with your favorite book the Q will be slipping past lines of traffic to be the first vehicle through the intersection when the light turns green. And speaking of green lights, Q buses have the ability to hold a green light until they get through

"The traffic is always better for MARTA Q routes 520 and 521 along Memorial Drive; it seems there's always a chance to pass slow cars and green lights appear to be more frequent. That's because it's set up that way. The new speedy bus routes, with special passing rights and lights programmed in their favor, essentially bring hubs in Tucker and Stone Mountain within 25 minutes of Kensington Station"
