MARTA to suspend service at 9 p.m. Sunday

MARTA will suspend all bus, rail and paratransit service at 9 p.m. Sunday.

The agency cited Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms' decision to extend a 9 p.m. curfew through today. The announcement gave riders more notice than Saturday's decision to suspend service with less than an hour's notice.

MARTA said riders should board their last train by 8:30 p.m. All 38 rail stations will close at 9 p.m. Because of police and National Guard activity at Centennial Olympic Park, the agency has already suspended streetcar service.

MARTA said it has police officers stationed throughout its system to protect passengers. Those who need assistance with transportation after 9 p.m. can call the agency’s customer care center at 404-848-5000.

MARTA said all transit service will resume a normal schedule Monday morning.
