ATLANTA—The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) just made commuting easier to enjoy with discounted two-day, unlimited weekend passes and discounted 30-day passes beginning in May.

“Weekends in Atlanta offer a full range of activities and attractions that MARTA customers now have even more reason to take advantage of,” said MARTA GM/CEO Keith T. Parker. “Our array of discounted fares helps get more people more places across our service area while expanding opportunities for riders that’s affordable for family and friends to enjoy.”

MARTA will also sell discounted 30-day unlimited passes for only $71, saving MARTA customers 25 percent off the regular price. The 30-day unlimited passes will be on sale from May 17 until May 31, 2017 and can be used at any time.
