David Wickert, writing for AJC, published a few of the comments they received from MARTA riders regarding the current bus cuts. Here’s one example:

Please start our buses back. We have to get Uber or Lyft to the train station every morning and evening that is costing us a fortune, especially at my age (68) and still working. We need help. somebody save us, please. A lot of people don’t have a car in my neighborhood. Just don’t forget about us. We still ride your trains Praying for help.
