MARTA Plans Schedule Changes for North Fulton Bus Routes

Connecting bus routes and trains should be easier once riders make their own adjustments to the new times.

MARTA is making changes to two of its bus routes in Alpharetta and Milton, which include adding another northbound trip fron North Springs Station.

Starting on Dec. 14, MARTA will make changes to Routes 143 and 185.

Route 143, the Windward Park & Ride route, will have an additional northbound trip leaving North Springs station at 2 p.m.

Other changes include having the 5:27 a.m. trip leaving Windward Park & Ride departing 2 minutes earlier at 5:25 a.m. Riders will need to make sure they don't show up for what used to be "on time" for this bus, or they will watch it drive away.

The 4:20 p.m. bus trip will depart at 4:25 p.m instead to improve bus and rail connections. Fewer riders should see the bus leaving before they reach it.

These  schedule changes also can be viewed online at the MARTA website.

Trip times will be adjusted to improve Route 185's performance and schedule stability, the MARTA news release said. The Alpharetta-Holcomb Bridge Road bus route's schedule can be viewed online.
