ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) suspended all bus, rail and MARTA Mobility service for Monday, September 11, ahead of the anticipated severe weather conditions caused by Hurricane Irma.

“The projected impact of this approaching storm requires us to suspend all MARTA service for Monday. We will continue to coordinate with state and local officials and emergency personnel to determine our service schedule for Tuesday,” said MARTA GM/CEO Keith Parker. “Safety remains our top priority for both our customers and employees.”

MARTA will resume limited bus, paratransit and rail services on Tuesday, beginning at 7 a.m.

By delaying the start of our service time, we are able to avoid the brunt of the severe conditions caused by Tropical Storm Irma. We anticipate resuming full bus and train service by midday,” said MARTA GM/CEO Keith Parker. “We will continue to monitor the weather conditions, evaluate our access to roadways and adjust our operations as needed.”
