ATLANTA – It’s a big week for public transit. 12,000 people from all over the world have been in Atlanta for the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) EXPO. MARTA has been center stage for the big event and FOX 5 got a first look at some of the new technology they’re showing off.
Across the country, public transit numbers are down, and at this expo, everyone in the industry is looking for ways to get more people to ride services like MARTA. Technology is, of course, at the forefront of that discussion and MARTA is hoping to make it easier for riders by going digital.
Get ready, Atlanta! MARTA is opening the doors to new technology. They’re introducing mobile ticketing. Soon, you’ll be able to buy trips, and scan your ticket, straight from their app.
