Most MARTA bus routes operate on weekdays from approximately 5 a.m. to midnight. On weekends and holidays, buses typically start later and are less frequent. Buses arrive anywhere from every 15 minute to every hour depending on the route, day and time.
You can pay $2.50 cash (exact change) to ride the bus and then tap your Breeze Card to load free transfers. If you do not have a Breeze Card, you can still pay cash, but will have to pay to transfer to MARTA rail or to another bus.
