As of this past Thursday, the MARTA Board of Directors has approved the 2015 Fiscal Year Operating Budget for the city’s transit system. The board approved a budget of $415.6 million, which will go into effect on July 1st. The increase in available funds will allow MARTA to increase their rail service hours by 19% and reduce wait time for trains during peak hours to under 10 minutes. MARTA has made quite a turn-around over the past several years; just three years ago in 2011, MARTA was operating in the red even after increasing fares by 25%.
