Local trips involving a single transit agency (e.g. MARTA)
- Transfers between local buses of the same operator are free (except for GRTA Xpress).
- Bus to rail (and vice versa) transfers are always free (according to transfer rules).
- Tranfers from a local bus to an express bus may require an upcharge (e.g. CobbLinc Local to CobbLinc Express).
Trips involving more than one transit agency (e.g. MARTA + CobbLinc)
- You must use a Breeze Card to receive a free transfer.
- MARTA must begin or end your journey. (No transfers between regional transit operators.)
- Your Breeze Card must have an stored cash value or the specific operator’s fare product to begin a regional trip.
How transfers work
- Board a bus or train with your Breeze Card.
- Arrive at your point of transfer (see major transfer stations below).
- Using the same Breeze Card, board the next vehicle on your trip.
Note: If you do not have a Breeze Card, you will have to pay the full-priced fare for each bus or train you board.
Each agency has its own specific rules about transfers, but here are some general rules of thumb.
It’s a little confusing, but there are some restrictions about when you can collect a free transfer, depending on which transit agencies your trip involves.
Does your journey involve MARTA?
- If so, you may transfer for free to (or from) any regional transit operator (except Streetcar).
- Regional transit operators include CobbLinc, Gwinnett County Transit and GRTA Xpress.
Does your journey involve two different regional/express bus transit operators?
- Sorry, free transfers directly between CobbLinc, GCT and GRTA is not allowed.
- You must start or end your transit trip on MARTA to qualify for a free transfer.
