MARTA to provide extra trains, buses for NCAA tournament  

MARTA will provide additional service on Thursday, March 22, and Saturday, March 24, for the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.

The NCAA Sweet Sixteen matchups on Thursday and Elite Eight rounds on Saturday are expected to draw tens of thousands of people to Philips Arena in downtown Atlanta. MARTA will provide additional rail and bus service on both evenings, with extra trains and buses on standby. Airport service will be available on both the Red and Gold Lines until game crowds clear.

In addition, Philips Arena and Five Points Stations will be staffed with more station agents to load trains quickly and prevent overcrowding on platforms. Peachtree Center, North Springs, Doraville, Indian Creek, H.E. Holmes, and College Park will also receive additional staff.

Riders are encouraged to buy a round trip Breeze card at the beginning of the evening to avoid long lines on the return. Visit for detailed rail and bus schedules and follow @MARTASERVICE on Twitter for service updates and announcements.
