Transportation Transformed: Xpress Gets a Makeover!

See Xpress like you have never seen it before.

The Georgia Regional Transportation Authority is proud to announce that we are creating a new Xpress experience for you! We will be rolling out NEWLY designed and transformed Xpress buses! To improve the rider experience, our newly renovated buses will come equip with top of the line amenities such as:

  • FREE onboard Wi-Fi.
  • USB ports to charge your devices.
  • 120-volt power outlets to plug in your laptop and charge your phone.
  • New floor-coverings, seat cushions and seat coverings to enhance your comfort and make your ride even more relaxing and enjoyable.
  • High-definition cameras to keep riders safe and secure.

Our new Xpress buses now have a more modernized feel with a brand new paint job. You can see the sleek, silver design, which displays our new logo, gleaming from a mile away. To ensure customers’ safety, each bus has received automotive renovations as well.

Our mobile app is also being transformed! We’re adding improved automatic vehicle location (AVL) systems so you’ll have more accurate information via your myXpress App about when your coach is coming. (Don’t yet have the myXpress App? Download the app via the Apple Store or GooglePlay so you can receive service alerts and see your coach location in real-time.)

Our newly refurbished fleet has already began hitting the streets, so if you haven’t experienced the new Xpress, it won’t be long. Ride with Xpress to take advantage of the advanced design and innovative features. Get ready for your transportation to be transformed!

It’s our goal to offer you the most efficient and well-appointed form of commuter transportation, and we’re confident that you’re going to enjoy your new Xpress experience. We’d love to hear what you think of the updated Xpress coach fleet, so please send us your feedback.

Riding on a Budget

Not only is it expensive to live in a big city, but your commute can also put a dent in your wallet. Gas prices are higher in an urban area, and traffic can increase the amount of money that is spent on travel. Although this may seem nearly impossible while navigating through the city, there are several ways to eliminate spending a ton of money.

Use transportation services. Always utilize commuter transportation services like Xpress. You will not only cut down on the costs of gas and car maintenance, but you will also avoid heavy traffic. Purchase your Xpress Pass today, and you will begin saving money right away.

Take advantage of car insurance discounts. Check with your car insurance company to see if they offer any discounts and if you qualify for any of them. Many offer discounts to students who are excelling academically, members of certain organizations or groups, retirees, etc.

Carpool. Does it make sense to have multiple cars leaving from the same area to reach a similar destination when the drivers can ride together? Carpooling is a great way to reduce commuting costs and eliminate traffic congestion.

The key to saving more money while traveling within a big city is to plan ahead and plan smart. Use all of the resources that are available to you so that you can cut down on traveling expenses!

MARTA Transitions from Blue to Silver Breeze Card

MARTA is making a change to improve the quality of the Breeze card. The blue Breeze card is being phased out and will be replaced with a more secure silver card. Beginning on March 31, no new products or stored cash value for your Xpress fare can be loaded onto a blue Breeze card. They will no longer be accepted as of July 9.

Xpress customers can still pay their fare using the new and improved silver Breeze cards. Xpress accepts Breeze cards on all of our routes. Using the brand new Breeze card will remain the easiest and most efficient way to pay your fare for metro Atlanta’s major transit agencies.
