Alignment and schedule changes for 27 MARTA bus routes went into effect Saturday, with the long-dreaded, much-maligned fare increase to follow a week from today, on Oct. 2.

Beginning next Sunday the price of a regular one-way fare will increase by 25 percent, to $2.50. The price of a weekly pass will go from $17 to $23.75, and a 30-day pass will cost nearly 40 percent more, jumping from $68 to $95. Details on MARTA Mobility and reduced fare prices are here.
