ROSWELL, Ga. — MARTA will begin a new bus route, Route 142, in Roswell on Monday, Dec. 11.
The MARTA Board of Directors recently voted to add bus service to the Holcomb Bridge Road corridor east of Ga. 400.
Route 142 starts at the Mansell Road Park & Ride Lot and travels south on Ga. 400 to Holcomb Bridge Road. The route then travels east on Holcomb Bridge Road to Spalding Drive and River Exchange Drive in Sandy Springs, before returning to the Mansell Park & Ride Lot. There, passengers can transfer to other bus routes that serve north Fulton County or to the North Springs Station for rail service.
“This is one of the more heavily traveled areas of north Fulton County,” said MARTA Assistant General Manger Ben Limmer. “An additional bus route will provide a transportation option and reduce the number of cars on the road in an already congested area.”
The new route will run on weekdays only, from 5:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Service will be every 30 minutes during morning and evening peak times and every 40 minutes during midday.
MARTA is installing new bus stop signs along the route to direct riders.
