MARTA also suspended service on its streetcar late Saturday, citing heavy traffic that slowed the trolley to a crawl.
Otherwise, the biggest impact on service may have been the number of passengers. Trains were packed, and passengers were lined up at Five Points Station – the system’s hub – and at the Dome/Georgia World Congress Center Station adjacent to many of the festivities. Many trains were standing room only.
Many MARTA parking lots were full Saturday afternoon, and others were near capacity.
The agency urged passengers to leave early to give themselves plenty of time to get where they’re going.
With parking lots filling up, it also recommended that on game day passengers carpool to their station or take a ride-hailing service. MARTA is partnering with Uber and Lyft to give 50 percent off rides to or from one of its stations, with the promotional code “SUPERMARTA.”
