MARTA to Run Extra Trains For Falcons Game

The service costs $2.50 each way.

MARTA to Run Extra Trains For Falcons Game


MARTA hopes Sandy Springs residents and other local sports fans will take transit downtown, Sunday, to catch Atlanta Falcons action as they take on the San Francisco 49ers.

Direct service to the Georgia Dome is available via MARTA and the local transit system will have extra trains running to get customers quickly to and from the game. Additional staff and police will be on hand to assist customers. In support of the hometown team, MARTA will be running a "Go Falcons" message on its buses and trains.  

For $2.50 one-way (plus a $1 charge for a permanent Breeze card), MARTA offers the most affordable and convenient way to travel to the game. Customers are encouraged to purchase round-trip fare at the start of their trip to avoid long lines on the return. 

Parking for less than 24 hours is free at all of MARTA’s daily parking facilities. Customers parking in the decks at Lindbergh Center Station must park in MARTA designated areas and validate their parking tickets at machines inside Lindbergh Station in order to receive free daily parking. Please note that MARTA has some designated lots which charge a fee including lots at Lenox, Brookhaven, Kensington, and College Park Stations.
