     NEWS & EVENTS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tuesday, December 30, 2008

Last trains will depart Five Points Rail Station at 2 a.m.

MARTA makes it easy to ring in the New Year at great celebrations throughout Atlanta including the Chick-fil-A Bowl and Peach Drop New Year’s Eve Celebration at Underground Atlanta.  Rail service will run every 15 minutes on both the North/South and East/West lines with the last trains departing Five Points station at 2 a.m.  Extra service will be available during the day to accommodate New Year’s Eve events.      

For only $1.75 each way (plus a one-time 50 cent fee for a Breeze ticket), MARTA makes it safe, convenient and affordable to travel to festivities.  Due to the large crowds that are expected, customers should purchase round trip fare at the beginning of their trip to avoid long lines on the return. 

Parking for less than 24 hours is free at all MARTA parking facilities.  Some bus routes will be re-routed for both the Chick-fil-A Bowl parade and Peach Drop. 

MARTA will operate a Sunday bus and rail schedule on New Year’s Day, Thursday, January 1st.  Please visit www.itsmarta.com or call Customer Information at 404-848-5000 for more information on MARTA’s holiday service.
