Deep Freeze: Atlanta Seeking to Gain Traction Thursday
Atlanta commuters, employers and schools are seeking to gain traction Thursday as icy conditions drag into Day Four.
Some workers have literally camped out at work during the week, while others are making the best of it by teleworking and adapting their routines. The situation over these past few days also has one state legislator convinced that more access to rail transit in Georgia could keep business moving forward in the face of seasonal weather and year-round traffic congestion issues.
Speaking of transit, here's a rundown of current service from major metro region providers for Thursday:
- MARTA reports rail service is online and about a dozen bus routes are running Thursday.
- GRTA Xpress is running limited service into downtown, but notes the only departure point for afternoon service will go out of Civic Center Station.
- Cobb County Transit reports local service is operational but express routes are limited for Thursday.
- Gwinnett County Transit advises that service is available on a limited schedule for today.
