MARTA is now a Breeze?

It’s been a while since we had a MARTA related post, no?

But today, well the 9th technically as I only used it today, the Sandy Springs station switched over from the old token entry to this new fangled Breeze card which replaces tokens altogether… Alright in theory I guess, but currently it’s one of two stations along with Bankhead that uses them, it’d be nicer if a lot more were involved but at least it still accepts the current monthly passes.

Expect to see a lot more work around MARTA entrances over the next few months as Airport, Five Points, Garnett, Brookhaven, Ashby, Vine City, West Lake, Avondale and Candler Park/Edgewood stations get an upgrade betweem now and the end of March.

And further proof the future is here:

Helpful Tips:

Please protect you Breeze Card. Bending or folding will damage the antenna and computer chip inside.

    Five Points is getting the new machines in 2 days; I’m not sure what the rollout for the rest of the stations are going to be in the future. I’m glad it still accepts the monthly passes — I was praying I wouldn’t have to buy another card this month! I wonder if companies will still crank out the old cards starting in March. The machines are nice and I’m glad the stations are getting a face lift.

    But heavens to Mergatroid…a <blink> tag? :)

    The bad: make the blink tag stop!

    The good: a Thomas Dolby or Tiki Bar TV reference.

    Yay! More trash! Say no to items that can be reused easier over longer amounts of time!
