Take Your Bike for a Ride

Make MARTA part of your bike commute

Driving isn’t your only option for getting around Atlanta. Taking your bike for a ride is the perfect way to shake up your commuting routines while enjoying the great outdoors.

That’s why we’ve set out to make MARTA a bike-friendly part of Atlanta. No matter your commute, bringing your bike on MARTA is easy and convenient. Every bus in our fleet has storage racks for two bikes, and our trains offer plenty of room for both you and your bike. Not only that, our stations accommodate bikes of all makes and sizes thanks to elevator access and widened walkways. And for those times when you need to keep your bike somewhere safe, MARTA stations offer storage free of charge — all you need is a lock and an open spot.

Worried about getting a flat tire during your ride? Don’t fret! We’re rolling out a new initiative that’s bringing bike repair kiosks to stations around the city. These kiosks provide free repair equipment for breakdowns such as flat tires and dislodged bike chains. This way minor mishaps won’t get in the way of your plans for the day. The first repair kiosk rolled out at Lindbergh Center station, and plans for expansion include kiosks at the following stations:

Rules for Riding

  • Avoid boarding trains that are already full
  • Keep your bicycle out of the aisle and away from any doors
  • Use elevators instead of escalators when entering and leaving the station
  • Walk your bicycle through the station
  • Only place your bicycle on the front rack of a MARTA bus — space is first come first served (two per bus)
    Loading Bike  Remember to hook the safety bar over your bike when loading it on the rack. And before you exit the bus, make sure to remind the driver that you need to retrieve your bike.
