Some MARTA Cuts Not Too Bad
(Atlanta Journal Constitution) — MARTA mini-bus No. 341 sat outside the Medical Center train station, waiting for passengers to board so it could begin its last run of the night. None did, and at 10:15 p.m. the doors fell shut. Around the corner it picked up two hospital workers, the only commuters for the entire route of more than six miles.
In three months MARTA will make wide-ranging system cuts that will eliminate more than 10 percent of its service, including Route No. 341. MARTA’s leaders have called the service cuts “devastating” and “draconian.” Some of those reductions, however, may raise questions of MARTA’s efficiency.
