MARTA launches new Website

Posted on August 4, 2009

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) launched its completely revamped Website, www.itsmarta.com, featuring new user-friendly features, streamlined content and a more accessible format for all customers.

The site includes real-time service alerts and up-to-date system information, integrated rail and system maps, pictures and videos, an event calendar, and a more modern look and feel. The redesigned site also automatically ensures that content is 508 compliant, making it accessible to individuals with disabilities.   

Visitors can access the new site through a banner on the former Website, which will remain online through the first phase of the launch. 

During the introductory period, MARTA is asking for visitors to help further enhance the new Website by providing feedback on its design, features and content.
