Bringing a Bike? No Problem.

Wheels Are Welcome on MARTA

We’ve set out to make MARTA a bike-friendly part of Atlanta. No matter your commute, bringing your bike on MARTA is easy and convenient — the perfect way to shake up your commute and enjoy the great outdoors.

  • Every bus has storage racks for two bikes
  • Our trains offer plenty of room for both you and your bike
  • Elevator access and widened walkways mean our stations accommodate bikes of all makes and sizes
  • MARTA stations offer bike storage free of charge — just bring a lock and find an open spot

Got a Flat?
No problem. We’re rolling out a new initiative that’s bringing bike repair kiosks to stations around the city.

These kiosks provide free repair equipment for breakdowns such as flat tires and dislodged bike chains.

The first repair kiosk rolled out at Lindbergh Center station, and plans for expansion include kiosks at all stations except for Airport Station.

Rules for Riding

  • Avoid boarding trains that are already full
  • Keep your bicycle out of the aisle and away from any doors
  • Use elevators instead of escalators when entering and leaving the station
  • Walk your bicycle through the station
  • Place your bike on the front rack of a MARTA bus — space is first come first served (two per bus)
  • Hook the safety bar over your bike when loading it on the rack. 
  • Before exiting the bus, remind the driver that you need to retrieve your bike
