The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority – MARTA for short – is one of the largest major transit systems in the United States
With around 115 million passengers each year, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority – MARTA for short – is the eighth-largest public transport system in the U.S., with four lines covering 76 kilometers and serving 38 stations. Our team was trusted to modernize the 109 elevators and 116 escalators in operation in all these stations.
For the escalators, our team used Schindler InTruss, our proprietary innovative solution for escalator upgrades – which allows our technicians to do the work on-site by leaving the truss in place, making the modernization quicker and more efficient.
All the modernized elevators and escalators are fitted with more efficient drive systems, less energy-hungry components, and smarter energy management software. They’re also all connected with Schindler Ahead – meaning they can be monitored remotely at all times, translating into more efficient servicing all-year round.
