Transit Spotlight: A Speedy Commute with Xpress
With the goal to make interstates safer, cheaper, and more efficient, Xpress provides workers throughout metro Atlanta with reliable service, multi-ride discounts, free park-and-ride lots and free transfers to MARTA. Their buses carry more than 1.8 million passenger trips annually, removing 55 million miles of congestion from the interstate each year. Xpress is operated by The State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA).
Areas it Serves
Xpress serves 13 metro Atlanta counties: Cherokee, Clayton, Coweta, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Paulding and Rockdale through 27 routes. Xpress is also taking advantage of the new, time-saving Northwest Corridor Express Lanes that run 29.7 miles along I-75 from Akers Mill Road to Hickory Grove Road and along I-575 from I-75 to Sixes Road. By choosing to ride Xpress, commuters can ride toll-free in the new reversible lanes. With 27 park-and-ride locations, Xpress draws ridership from 44 counties and provides a connection between 3.4 million residents and 375,000 jobs.
Xpress provides workers with reliable, stress-free commutes to and from major employment centers in Downtown, Midtown, and Perimeter Center. The park and ride locations allow commuters in cities that do not have direct access to MARTA, such as Newnan, Dacula and Conyers, to still have a convenient transit option.
