The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority

Posted on Posted in Infrastructure

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority or MARTA is the principal rapid-transit system in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Once again, thanks to Morrison-Knudsen manufactured rail cars and our engineering skills, MARTA is the eighth-largest rapid transit system in the United States by ridership. Formed in 1971 as strictly a bus system, MARTA operates a network of bus routes linked to a rapid transit system consisting of 48 miles of rail track with 38 train stations where our company was the lead contractor for the construction and design of the transit system.
