As part of the Fiscal Year 2013 Budget, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority's scheduled fare increase for Reduced Fare and Mobility fare products on take effect on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012.

The change was part of the previously announced three-year phased increases MARTA adopted for those fare types products during the Fiscal Year 2010 budgetary cycle. The phase-in was planned to mitigate the financial impact on the budgets of seniors and those with disabilities.

The reduced fare and Mobility fare changes are as follows:

Reduced (Half-Fare)

$0.95

$1

Mobility Base (One-Way)

The FY 2013 budget also included a “steady state” level of current bus and rail services while increasing Mobility services by approximately nine percent, MARTA said. That budget also includes increasing safety and security measures and repair projects.

For more information, reduced fare customers may call 404.848.5112. Information also is available in an accessible format by calling 404.848.5202 or 404.848.5665 for TTY customers.
