Input sought on Xpress stops near federal buildings


Xpress bus customers who work at the federal buildings in downtown Atlanta can hear more about proposed service changes at a public forum Tuesday.

Customers affected are those who use existing stops along Forsyth Street and at the Five Points MARTA Station. Specifically, employees who work at the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Building, Richard B. Russell Federal Building, and the Sam Nunn Federal Center.

The changes are part of the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority's (GRTA) effort to implement system-wide bus route modifications, schedule adjustments, and fare changes to its Xpress bus service. The changes will take effect Sept. 6, 2016 or later.

GRTA staff will be on hand to discuss the proposed service changes and address any questions or concerns. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Building, Atlanta Conference Rooms 2 and 3, at

77 Forsyth Street SW.

Customers can also provide feedback by taking a survey on the GRTA website.
