Courses in Commute: MARTA

The collapse of the I-85 bridge has severely impacted Atlanta traffic, and while we anxiously await its re-opening at the end of this month, the team here at Peachtree Center wants to make these last few weeks a breeze for you by highlighting our favorite (and most sensible) means of transit. As graduation, summer getaways and Memorial Day weekend approach, traffic is bound to increase so finding a commute option that works best for you is important.

MARTA is without a doubt one of the most efficient and versatile means of transportation around Atlanta. With 38 stops and easy access to over 500 destinations, this commute option is a no brainer, especially for those who commute to Downtown Atlanta. Downtown is home to five distinct MARTA stops, including one right here at Peachtree Center that connects directly to our retail hub and office towers. Many MARTA stations offer free parking for commuters, and the transit authority recently announced plans to lower prices of monthly passes. That means you can get to and from work on the train for $71 per month, the price of about two tanks of gas! (Source: AJC)
