Why is Track Renovation being done Now?  

MARTA started work in 2003 to rebuild and upgrade all 48 miles of track. Our trains have run every day for over 25 years – this work is necessary to keep the system strong for the next 25 years and beyond.The Track Renovation is part of a major capital program that also includes the overhaul of over 200 of MARTA’s rail cars. When complete, customers will benefit from a virtually new system that will run efficiently and be more reliable.

How does this work affect rail service?   

MARTA has parallel tracks all along its Red, Gold, Blue and Green lines – allowing for one train to run in each direction during normal operations. As individual sections of track are being repaired, trains must share a single track through the affected area. This “single tracking” can result in delays in rail service. We are doing our best to disrupt MARTA customers as little as possible during this process; however, some work during regular service hours cannot be avoided. The majority of the work is being done late at night and during weekends.back to top  
 

Track work is part of an $80 million capital program to renovate all 48 miles of MARTA rail. This, combined with a separate program to rehabilitate existing rail cars, will provide MARTA customers with a virtually new system when complete. More...
