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.
Note that if you are planning to ride the train on weekdays, in most cases you don’t need to look up a schedule, just arrive at a train station and wait on the next train. However, you’ll want to check holiday schedules and weekend schedules as train frequency is usually 20 minutes, so best to avoid any long waits on the train platform if possible!
Download the MARTA on the Go App for the next arriving trains and real-time bus locations on a map.
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.
