View the list of observed MARTA holidays with corresponding schedule changes and hours for 2019. In many cases, train frequency is every 20 minutes on holidays and buses also tend to run on weekend schedules. Note that rail service also terminates approximately the same time daily just after 1 a.m., no matter the day. Rail start times, however, might be slightly later on a holiday.
Tip: We always recommend using the MARTA on the Go app or marta.io to view real-time train arrivals for the best commute experience instead of relying on printed schedules.
