The City of Union City is committed to the safety and well-being of our residents, businesses, staff members and visitors.  Essential to this commitment is open communication with our community about COVID-19 (Coronavirus).  Critical steps are necessary in following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control.  Careful planning is being used to determine the measures we are taking regarding the adjustments to our operations including event cancellations, and closings.  Health and safety remain our highest priority.

We are working with our partners at the county, state, and federal levels to monitor and understand the risks associated with the virus as well as the impacts it poses for communities.

MARTA COVID-19 Bus Service Reductions - Effective April 20, 2020

Post Date:04/17/2020 7:52 AM

MARTA ESSENTIAL SERVICE PLAN 

Beginning Monday, April 20, MARTA will implement an Essential Service plan for buses that reduces the number of routes overall to allow for doubling of service on the busiest, most critical routes.  With the 40 routes and 1 new circulator service, we will provide transportation to 17 hospitals, 22 urgent care facilities, 85 grocery stores and 16 job centers/industrial hubs. With those destinations in mind, the Essential Service routes also provide as much geographical coverage in our service territory as possible.

Bus Reductions - New Routes April 20[2]

MARTA understands the negative impact on bus-dependent riders, but this Essential Service plan is necessary to protect the health and safety of our customers and our employees. 

This plan keeps MARTA running for health care personnel and other essential workers as we continue to navigate through this public health crisis.

In addition to the bus route modifications, MARTA has installed seat blocking placards in all buses to prevent riders from sitting too close to each other and has established a Customer Hotline where customers can report an overcrowded bus.  Decals near the boarding door of all buses encourage customers NOT to board a bus that has no open seats and to wait for the next bus that will be coming along, in most cases, within 10 minutes. 

MARTA Police will also be patrolling buses and trains to ensure that patrons are abiding by the rules.  In too many instances, riders are destroying the placards and placing other customers and our employees in jeopardy.

There is no change in current rail service or in MARTA Mobility, our door-to-door service for approved paratransit riders.
