ATLANTA – Beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, August 27, Atlanta will host a week of Labor Day activities, including sporting events, festivals, parades, and Dragon Con. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) is a safe, affordable way to travel to the events, and avoid sitting in traffic.


Take MARTA to the following Labor Day events:

  • Tuesday, Aug. 27 – U.S. Open Cup / Atlanta vs. Minnesota – Mercedes-Benz Stadium

  • Friday, Aug. 30 – Sunday, Sept. 1 – Decatur Book Festival
  • Saturday, Aug. 31 – Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game / Alabama vs. Duke – Mercedes-Benz Stadium


Know before you go:

  • Be mindful of Dragon Con costumes when boarding trains and do not block doors from closing.
  • On Saturday, Aug. 31, MARTA Transit Ambassadors and additional Breeze card agents will be deployed throughout the system to assist customers.
  • Due to work at Peachtree Center Station, two escalators at the south end of the platform are out of service and a large generator is located at Peachtree and Ellis Streets.
  • Allow extra travel time, as rail stations and trains may be crowded.
  • Buy a round-trip ticket to avoid long lines on your return.
  • No sharing fares. One Breeze card per rider.
  • Visit  www.itsmarta.com/parking for parking availability, keeping in mind parking lots at end-of-line stations fill up quickly.
  • Download MARTA’s On the Go app for real-time service alerts and MARTA’s See & Say app to report suspicious activity.
