MARTA GENERAL MANAGER AND POLICE CHIEF TAKE INAUGURAL ATLANTA STREETCAR RIDE
Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) General Manager & CEO Jeffrey A. Parker and Chief of Police Wanda Y. Dunham took an inaugural ride on the Atlanta Streetcar after the Authority assumed operations this month.
Mr. Parker and Chief Dunham spoke with those onboard, including members of a group from Denver who were using the streetcar to explore downtown Atlanta.
As of July 1, MARTA’s Office of Light Rail Operations handles daily operations, maintenance, and technical inspections of the streetcar. Other support services are provided by staff within current MARTA departments.
There are several ways to pay the $1 fare to ride the streetcar:
· You may purchase your fare directly from a Breeze vending machine at a streetcar stop using credit or debit.
· You may use stored value on your Breeze card to buy fare from any Breeze vending machine at a streetcar stop.
· You may purchase your fare using the Atlanta Streetcar mobile app.
· You may pay using exact change when boarding the streetcar.
MARTA Police Officers will be on board every train to ensure the safety and security of the system. Speak to one of the officers or download MARTA’s See & Say app to report any suspicious activity.
