MARTA, Gwinnett Scale Back Bus Service

ATLANTA  -- MARTA is operating on a limited schedule today with only 12 routes running because of icy conditions on roads throughout the Atlanta area.

Service will run until 1:30 a.m., but riders should expect delays on all routes.

Rail service will remain on a Saturday-Sunday schedule ending at 12:30 a.m.

As for what the future holds, MARTA's deputy GM tells 11Alive's Matt Pearl they expect to be running on a full weekday schedule by Tuesday, Jan. 18. They expect to run at a normal weekend schedule -- at least for the rail service -- from now until that date. At this point, much of the bus service depends on the roads.
