Official Web site of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.
In 1972, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority became responsible for all public transportation in the Atlanta area. The last streetcars ran in 1949. And in 1979, the first rapid transit line opened.
How the electric railways and private bus companies evolved into today's bus system.
The Atlanta metropolitan area has grown well beyond the original area served by MARTA, and traffic congestion has become worse. And in recent years, several new bus systems have been created to serve the outlying counties.
Zoomable Google Maps show locations of present transit facilities. Satellite views are also available.
