The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) will suspend rail service on its Red Line south of Medical Center Station from Friday, Feb. 17 at 9 p.m. until the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 22 for track replacement work.

Red Line service to the airport will remain on a reduced frequency from Thursday, Feb. 23, to Sunday, Feb. 26. Red Line service north of the Medical Center station and on the Gold, Blue, and Green lines will operate normally.

Free bus shuttles will run continuously between Medical Center, Buckhead, and Lenox Stations, and a $10 Uber or Lyft voucher will be available through MARTAConnect.

MARTA is investing approximately $225 million in State of Good Repair work on its heavy rail lines to enhance the safety of the rail system, reduce train delays, and improve customer experience. The Track Replacement Program is a multi-year effort to replace track and switches throughout the rail system.
