Did you know that public transportation investments yield 4-1 returns for local economies? And that Thursday, April 25, is National Public Transit Day? Or, so declared one gentleman at the Lindbergh Center Transit Station as he handed passersby stickers for the chance to win yoga class passes, frozen yogurt and free lunch, among other things.
The station serves as a connecting hub for MARTA’s Red and Gold lines, as well as its Headquarters.
He happily clarified himself when approached by a curious stranger.
“It’s the inaugural National Public Transit Day. At least, [we are] hoping. We’re trying to raise awareness.”
Nearby cities such as Birmingham (AL) and Knoxville (TN) are also celebrating the benefits of using mass transit. Learn more about Get On Board Day and the benefits of public transportation here, and visit Its Marta to find your nearest transit station.
