MARTA trains will run round-the-clock through early Tuesday to accommodate Super Bowl crowds.

NEW DETAILS: MARTA launches 24-hour Super Bowl rail service a day early

MARTA will begin operating round-the-clock rail service to accommodate Super Bowl concert crowds tonight – a day earlier than originally planned. 

The transit agency will run trains continuously from now until early Tuesday morning to accommodate visitors attending Sunday’s Super Bowl and a slew of concerts and other events associated with the big game. 

Originally, MARTA planned to begin 24-hour rail service Friday night. But this week it decided to launch the service a day early to accommodate crowds attending late concerts, according to David Springstead, the agency’s chief of rail operations. 

Thursday night’s concert lineup includes Ludacris & Friends, Migos, Lil Yachty and Lil Baby at 9 p.m. at State Farm Arena and the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration at 7:30 p.m. at Atlanta Symphony Hall.
