MARTA to launch four new routes

MARTA will launch four new bus routes in Clayton County and make several service improvements on other bus routes starting Saturday.

The changes come as a result of feedback from a series of public hearings and community presentations in the transit agency's service area of Clayton, DeKalb, and Fulton counties.

The four new routes are part of the second phase of MARTA's expansion into Clayton County. Bus routes 191  (Clayton Justice Center to the international arrivals level at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport), 193 (Clayton Justice Center to MARTA's East Point Station), and 195 (Anvil Block Road and Lunsford Drive to MARTA's College Park Station) will have Monday-Sunday service.

Route 800 will be a circulator route between the City of Lovejoy and the Jonesboro Justice Center to better connect residents to MARTA’s fixed-route buses in Clayton. It will operate Monday to Saturday, but not on Sunday.
