Xpress Commuter Service bus stops for routes 400 and 416 will be impacted on Friday, Feb. 1, due to road closures for the NFL Honor Ceremony, which will be held at the Fox Theatre in downtown Atlanta. Riders during the afternoon trips should plan to board at the following temporary bus stops: 

  • Peachtree Street & Renaissance Parkway at Emory Hospital (Northbound) at MARTA stop
  • Linden Avenue before West Peachtree Street

The stops listed above are replacing the following stops, which will not be serviced: 

  • Peachtree Street at Linden Avenue
  • Ponce De Leon Ave at West Peachtree Street
  • Spring Street at Linden Street

In addition, these routes will be rerouted on Peachtree Street (northbound) turning left on Linden Avenue and continuing to I-75/85 North.

“SRTA is working diligently to ensure that all Xpress routes run as smoothly as possible during this period of road closures,” said SRTA Executive Director Chris Tomlinson. “Safety and efficiency are our top priorities as our coaches work to maneuver through Super Bowl traffic. We’re excited that Atlanta is hosting the Super Bowl and we are committed to helping our riders get to their destinations during this momentous event.” 

Road closures will take place on Peachtree Street between Ponce De Leon and 3rd Street as well as Ponce De Leon between Peachtree Street and West Peachtree Street from 12 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 1, until 5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 3. For concerns regarding this matter, please contact Xpress at 844-XPRSSGA (977-7742).
