2019 SERVICE ALERTS

Midtown Routes Impacted Due to Road Closure

The City of Atlanta has closed West Peachtree Street between North Ave and 5th Street to access and repair a void under the road until further notice.

From today, April 19, 2019 until the road reopens, the following Midtown routes will be impacted for both morning and afternoon service: 400, 411, 412, 414, 416, 423, 431, 440/441, 453, 463, 476, 483

 

Due to the closure, the Xpress stop located at North Ave Marta Station @ West Peachtree & Ponce De Leon Ave will be inaccessible by transit, and customers are advised to utilize another stop along their route in lieu of North Ave Marta Station. We apologize for the inconvenience.

 

Xpress routes 411, 412, 414, 423, 431, 440/441, 453, 463, 476, 483 will follow the detour below:

Route 400 & 416 afternoon only:

The last afternoon stop will be Linden Ave & West Peachtree. All passengers must board at Linden Ave & West Peachtree St.

**This change is only in effect while West Peachtree St is closed, the long-term detour will return once West Peachtree Street is reopened.**  

Due to sidewalk closures for construction involving the development of Norfolk Southern’s new headquarters, Xpress Commuter Service bus stops for routes 400 and 416 will be impacted beginning Monday, March 25, 2019, until Fall 2021.

Riders during the afternoon trips should plan to board at the following temporary bus stops:

  • Peachtree Street & Renaissance Parkway at Emory Hospital (Northbound) at MARTA stop
  • Linden Avenue before West Peachtree Street
  • W. Peachtree & Ponce (North Ave MARTA Station)

The stops listed above are replacing the following stops which will not be serviced:

  • Peachtree Street at Linden Avenue
  • Ponce De Leon Ave at West Peachtree Street
  • Spring Street at Linden Street

In addition, these routes will be rerouted on Peachtree Street (northbound) turning left on Linden Avenue, making a right on W. Peachtree and concluding service at North Ave MARTA Station.
