Atlanta’s first regional-transit trip app launches, called ‘game changer’

  • Date: 11/14/2023

Officials with Atlanta-region Transit Link Authority, or ATL, on Monday announced the region’s first transit trip planning app is available for download, following months of Beta testing that started in the spring.

The goal of the new ATL Rides technology is simple (in a balkanized region where transit connections often aren’t): To enable transit customers to plan seamless trips, by way of a one-stop-shop app, for crossing systems in 13 counties operated by six different agencies.

Those include Xpress, MARTA, Ride Gwinnett, CobbLinc, Connect Douglas, and the Cherokee Area Transit System, or CATS.

The service is free and quick (based on our test runs), and it’s extra handy in immediately providing total fare costs for each trip. Not being in a hurry, in most cases, will probably boost user satisfaction.
