Learn More About Single Tracking

Rail schedule changes are frequently necessary to allow for track work. MARTA normally operates trains on two tracks, but we have to take one track out of service to perform maintenance. This requires all trains to share one track. We create special service schedules so that you can accurately plan your trips during this track work. You’ll find these schedules posted below for dates with upcoming track work. Learn how this works in the videos below.
