Green Line

MARTA Green Line map

The MARTA green line runs east and west through downtown Atlanta to stations that are primarily in residential areas. One unique feature of the green line is that the trains only have two rail cars (versus the standard four), so the trains are shorter and often less crowded than the four-car trains.

RIDER ALERT: Starting March 30, 2020, the green line will only travel between the Bankhead and King Memorial MARTA stations. In normal circumstances, the green line also stops at Inman Park and Edgewood/Candler Park on weekdays.

Stations

*Free daily parking

Schedule

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, MARTA rail service will operate on weekend schedules starting March 30, 2020 with a train frequency of every 20 minutes. Green line hours are approximately 4:45 a.m. to 1:15 a.m. on weekdays and 6 a.m. to 1:15 a.m. on weekends and holidays.
