MARTA buses are returning to the normal schedules on Feb. 15 and 16 after being parked due to severe winter weather.

The trains will be undergoing maintenance, however.

On its website, MARTA says it will be implementing single tracking so it can perform scheduled maintenance on its rail service.

Here’s the full rundown, from MARTA:

Red Line – trains will only operate between North Springs and Lindbergh; therefore, service between Lindbergh and Airport Stations will be running at a reduced frequency – every 20 minutes. Customers traveling from North Springs will need to transfer to a Gold Line train at Lindbergh Station in order to continue southbound to the Airport. Customers traveling northbound from the Airport will need to board a Gold Line train and transfer to a Red Line train at Lindbergh Station to continue to North Springs Station.

At Lakewood and Oakland City, all trains will board on the southbound platform on Saturday and the northbound platform on Sunday.

All Blue and Green trains will run on a special 24 minute single-tracking schedule. The Green Line trains will shuttle from Bankhead to Ashby. At West Lake, Ashby, and Vine City, all trains will board on the westbound platform.
