MARTA will be temporarily closing parking decks at Dunwoody and Medical Center Stations on the Red Line to install new equipment that will make paying for parking more convenient.

  • June 4 to June 28: Medical Center parking deck closed. Customers may use parking decks at Sandy Springs, North Springs, Doraville, and Lindbergh Stations.
  • June 10 to July 3: Dunwoody Station parking deck closed. Customers may use parking decks at Sandy Springs, North Springs, Doraville, and Lindbergh Stations. This lot will be open for Peachtree Road Race users on July 4. Local shuttles will operate as normal.

This temporary closure is needed to install new entry and exit gates, ticket dispensers, fee payment machines, license-plate recognition cameras, and other technology for running the system. New payment kiosks will allow customers to pay with cash or card before going to their car and exiting the lot.

This project is upgrading all of the equipment at MARTA’s paid long-term parking facilities at 10 heavy rail stations. In the future, this system will be compatible with MARTA’s Automated Fare Collection 2.0 system, which means customers will be able to pay for parking with their fares through a single MARTA app.


MARTA is set to begin the first phase of the Five Points Transformation Project in July, which will transform the station into a vibrant city center, with improved transit connectivity, increased safety, and enhanced customer amenities. Built in the ‘70’s, Five Points is MARTA’s largest and busiest rail station and the connecting point for all four rail lines.

The first phase of the Five Points Transformation Project is the deconstruction of the Brutalist canopy, an enormous concrete structure that will need to be meticulously taken apart and removed. This work will have major service impacts to downtown bus routes and street-level access to Five Points for approximately 18 months. Rail service at Five Points is not impacted and will operate normally.

There are two important dates as this project begins; July 6 when eight bus routes will be relocated to nearby stations, and July 29, when street access to Five Points will close. Additional impacts include the relocation of station services to Ashby Station on July 29 and limited elevator access for rail transfers. All the service impacts are detailed at www.itsmarta.com/fivepoints.

Future construction phases include building a new canopy that allows for ample light and ventilation, establishing a centralized bus hub, and reconnecting Broad Street to pedestrian traffic. Additional improvements include incorporating community spaces, public art, and agriculture.
