So you’ve made the leap to becoming a MARTA commuter, or are just a junkie for transportation information in Atlanta. Twitter is a great way to stay on top real-time news or alerts while on the go. Check out these five Twitter feeds to follow to stay in the know about all things MARTA (that’s #MARTA in Atlanta and not #MARTA the soccer player).

@MARTAGuide

@MARTAGuide (that’s us) is all about MARTA tips, directions, events and news, including some of the larger service alerts. Special features include Throwback Thursday photos and featured businesses and destinations near stations.

@MARTASERVICE

MARTA’s official Twitter account, @MARTASERVICE is the feed to follow for updates on service, elevator outages and other announcements. Note that the @MARTAalerts account is not official and more or a less a copy of this feed, though many people end up following it inadvertently.

@CEOMARTA

The big man on the MARTA campus, CEO Keith Parker (@CEOMARTA), has a Twitter feed you can follow for updates straight from headquarters. Parker is a regular MARTA rider and successfully took the transit agency out of the red, which resulted in increased train frequency during peak hours (plus, he’s making WiFi happen).

@MARTATOD1

If you’re interested in how Atlanta’s urban landscape is changing, especially transit-oriented developments near MARTA, follow Amanda Rhein at @MARTATOD1. Rhein is the Senior Director of Transit Oriented Development and Real Estate at MARTA, and you can also catch up on the latest news online via the MARTA projects website.

@MARTA_Explorer

See Atlanta through the eyes of a MARTA commuter via @MARTA_Explorer. Tweets include links to Instagram photos of interesting (and transit-accessible) things to see and do around the city — great for getting ideas for your own exploration.
