There are several different MARTA schedules to view when planning your trip or while on the go. Real-time information is available for both trains and buses, and set schedules are also available for rail lines, rail stations and bus routes. See below to learn about how and when to use each schedule and view 2019 holiday schedules to learn about special service hours.
Download the MARTA on the Go App for the next arriving trains and real-time bus locations on a map. If you don’t want to download the app, you can view all arriving trains by station online. The real-time information is the best to use while on your commute, especially on nights and weekends when trains are every 20 minutes. The data takes into account any delays.
Rail Line Schedules
The below MARTA rail line schedules are in a timetable, so you can see how long it will take you to travel between stations on the same rail line. Google Maps also provides trip time data. Otherwise, the key thing to know is that rail service starts on weekdays around 4:45 a.m. and at 6 a.m. on the weekends, with service ending around 1:15 a.m. every day. Note that buses and trains can get off schedule, though accuracy is often quite high. Frequency is usually good during the day, so looking at these schedules tends to make the most sense if you are traveling at night, on the weekend or on a holiday (MARTA typically uses Sunday schedules on holidays).
Station schedules are available in the MARTA to Go app or on the MARTA website under each station page. Station information is also in the above rail line links. Don’t be alarmed if you don’t see any times listed for some red-line stations at night. The red line stops traveling to the airport around 8:30 p.m. But you can use the gold line and transfer to the red line at Lindbergh Center as needed to continue your trip. Google Maps will also provide your best route option based on the current time or a time you select, and will help guide you through any transfer information if needed.
Each MARTA bus route has a different schedule. Some routes stop running earlier in the evening than others, with the last bus service typically ending around midnight. You can pick up printed copies of bus schedules at the Five Points MARTA station or look up your route online or in the MARTA on the Go app. Bus information is also in Google Maps, so it is often easier to just plan your trip using that tool to get the bus number and bus stop times that you need.
