The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority values both the safety of American citizens as well as the speed at which they travel every day in the city of Atlanta. And with its official app, you’ll have an easier time knowing when its next train is going to come in or where to wait around so you can catch a fast bus.

Unlike a lot of other subway apps, the app of MARTA covers a more extensive, combined network of buses and trains. Both of these could prove vital. It doesn't matter whether you’re new in town, or you live in Doraville while your office is in College Park.

▲ If you’re going by train, it’s best to check out “Next Train Arrivals” and select your current station.

▲ As for buses, switch on over to the tab and select the route.

▲ You can either view its daily schedule or see where it is right now on the map.

Combining both trains and buses into a single rapid-transit system means that’s it’s going to be big. And if you don’t know your way around, you could spend one too many minutes reading guides in every station. The same goes even if you’re a local and all you really know is the route you normally take. At least with MARTA’s official app, you’ll be able to get around faster. Its real-time updates can help you do everything from switching your entire train route for the day to simply just knowing when to take the stairs because the elevator’s broken. Stay safe, and stay speedy!
