Season 2 of "The Porch" at MARTA's Arts Center Station Kicks Off This Summer

As a continuation of Midtown Alliance's 2016 partnership with MARTA, the High Museum of Art and local artists, and in celebration of the station as a gateway into Midtown, a new round of activations are headed to The Porch at Arts Center Station.

Midtown Transportation Challenges Midtown Residents, Workers to Go Car-Lite.

Are you ready to GO CAR-LITE? With over 96% of Midtown Atlanta’s buildings within a 6-minute walk of a MARTA transit station, you don’t have to rely on your car to get around. We’re challenging Midtown Atlanta residents and workers to trade in their keys for a cleaner way to get around.

5 people will be selected to share their experience via social media in exchange for an all-expense-paid mobility toolkit—valued at over $300. Participants will also receive a Midtown staycation package after the 5 week challenge.

Stay tuned for more information. 
Did you know that you can get farm fresh produce on your way home from work, without even making a detour? Giving you another reason to love your clean commute, MARTA is now hosting “Fresh MARTA Market” pop-up farm stands at four of its transit stations:  West End, Five Points, College Park, and H.E. Holmes MARTA Stations.
The Fresh MARTA Market sources locally-grown produce from members of the Southwest Atlanta Growers Cooperative and farmers affiliated with Community Farmers Markets, as well as several local food hubs. By connecting local farmers with commuters in a fast, fresh and convenient way, you can save time, eat healthy, and gain access to locally-sourced food you might not otherwise find at your area grocery store.
The Fresh MARTA Market is just one of the many benefits of using a commute alternative! Each stand operates one day a week, Tuesday to Friday, at a different station each day. Find more information about how to make the Fresh MARTA Market part of your routine.

Through the Georgia Proton Center, Atlanta will soon have a powerful cancer-fighting tool that can help save thousands of lives annually. Arriving soon from overseas is special proton laser therapy equipment weighing 90+ tons that will be lowered into the facility using heavy-duty cranes.

Georgia Proton Center is working in coordination with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and the City of Atlanta to close all travel lanes on one block of Juniper Street between Ponce De Leon Ave. and North Ave. from June 26 until late-October 2017. Residents and commuters are encouraged to follow detour signs to Argonne Ave. / Central Park Place and North Ave. or consider other alternate routes during this window.
