This week we're asking MARTA riders outside the Decatur station: How do you feel about a possible MARTA rate increase? MARTA is considering a fare hike of 50 cents as soon as Oct. 2. That would mean a one way fare would be $2.50 under the proposal. Monthly passes would increase from $68 to $95.
MARTA plans to hold public hearings on May 16 at 7 p.m., in the South Fulton Service Center at 5600 Stonewall Tell Rd., in College Park; and the Fulton County Government Center at 141 Pryor St., in Atlanta. On May 17, public hearings will be held at 7 p.m., at the , 1300 Commerce Drive in Decatur; and North Fulton Service Center, 7741 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.
