MARTA lines to be color-coded

Like subway systems in most major cities, MARTA has now tagged each of its train lines with a different color: red, green, blue or yellow, according to MARTA. The change is intended to make it easier to catch the correct train.

Trains will still display the name of the end-destination station. So a rider boarding at the airport going to Chamblee can either look for the “Doraville” end destination sign, or for the color yellow on the sign’s background, said MARTA spokesman Lyle Harris.

The colors:

North Springs-airport: red

Doraville-airport: yellow

Bankhead-Edgewood/Candler Park: green

Holmes-Indian Creek: blue
