• Officials: Technical issues at Atlanta airport cause "extensive" MARTA delays


    ATLANTA - MARTA riders at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport are experiencing extensive delays on the red and gold lines, officials say.

    On Thursday night, MARTA tweeted there are "extensive delays" continuing due to a technical issue at the airport.

    In a statement from MARTA, a representative said: 

    "The technical issue at the airport had to do with a train that stalled in the interlocking area (that's the spot where multiple trains can pass through) and trains could not travel through there until the disabled train was moved. It has been moved to the rail yard for service and trains are moving north and southbound again but with delays."

    Shortly before 9 p.m., MARTA tweeted that minor service delays remained following the issue.
