🛠 The Details: To allow for major upgrades, including new flooring and the preparation for a canopy structure, MARTA’s Airport Station will be closed from April 8 through May 19. During this period, travelers can use a dedicated shuttle service operating between College Park Station and the airport’s North Terminal. This service will run 22 hours daily, ensuring minimal disruption to the flow of passengers and staff to the world’s busiest airport.

📅 By The Numbers:

  • 6-week closure: April 8 – May 19.
  • Shuttle service hours: 4 a.m. to 2 a.m.
  • 17 months: The amount of construction time saved by the temporary closure.

🌐 The Big Picture: This renovation is part of a larger effort to enhance the overall experience and safety at MARTA stations, reflecting the transit authority’s commitment to serving the needs of Atlanta’s residents and its visitors. Previous upgrades have included structural, electrical, and aesthetic improvements, with more on the horizon, including a public art installation.

🚌 What’s Next?: After the six-week closure, further improvements will continue with planned nightly closures in 2025 and another potential closure for the canopy installation. Travelers and employees are encouraged to allow extra time for their commutes and stay informed about the shuttle service arrangements.
