MARTA will end bus service at 10 p.m. Wednesday, and will modify its Thursday service to deal with winter weather.
Roads are expected to re-freeze overnight, said Stephany Fisher, a MARTA spokesperson. Bus service will end early to keep drivers and passengers safe; Wednesday morning, 25 buses slid on ice or got stuck in snow before picking up passengers.
Rail service will continue until 2 a.m. Thursday on a modified, weekend schedule, Fisher said. Empty trains will run overnight to prevent issues related to the cold temperatures.

Fisher said on Thursday, rail service will start at 6 a.m. and trains will arrive every 10 to 20 minutes. The Red and Gold lines will go to the airport all day.
Limited bus service will begin at 6 a.m. as well. Buses will run on major roads and to medical facilities. MARTA Mobility passengers with scheduled pick-ups will receive service.
