As MARTA works on possible parking solutions, it’s urging passengers to carpool to or get dropped off at stations. Some people seem to have turned to uberPOOL: Trips to or from MARTA stations increased by more than 80 percent this week compared to last week, Uber said on Friday.
The 50 percent discount is good from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays on uberPOOL rides that begin or end at MARTA stations (a previously announced 25 percent discount on all uberPOOL rides in metro Atlanta was good this week only and is not being extended at this time).
Those discounted rides may continue to come in handy: After all, this coming Monday brings the end of spring break. And with it, potentially, even more MARTA riders.
