The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) opened its doors to a fully renovated Reduced Fare and Lost and Found offices at the Five Points Station on May 17. Upgrades to the facility include expanded waiting area space and prominent signage to enhance customers’ experience.
“Our new Reduced Fare Office now offers the needed upgrades to adequately accommodate our customers with disabilities and senior riders,” said MARTA GM/CEO Keith Parker. “This brighter, user-friendly facility is outfitted with an all new HVAC system, security system as well as individual privacy window service.”
Eligible senior citizens, people with disabilities and Medicare cardholders can apply for reduced fare Breeze cards at the Five Points Station and the MARTA Headquarters at Lindbergh.
Members of the MARTA Accessibility Committee (MAC) assisted in the planning process for the newly removed office space. “From the increased lighting for the visually impaired to additional seating for the disabled, it is pleasing to see that the MARTA team put extra care into the small details,” said MAC Chairman Roderick Parker.
