MARTA Prepares To Transport Massive Atlanta Crowd To And From Beyoncé Shows
The Renaissance World Tour has arrived in the ATL, and the crowds are expected to be massive.
To help transport the Bey Hive this weekend, the Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority announced that additional rail and bus services will be available to and from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
“I’m telling everybody, Everybody, EVERYBODY” that MARTA is the easiest way to travel to @MBStadium to see @Beyonce at the #RenaissanceWorldTour this weekend,” the transit company wrote on Twitter. “Bypass traffic by parking at a rail station & ride with us to the concert!”

According to WSB-TV, fans can access a dedicated train shuttle two hours before the concert. The shuttle will transport concert attendees between Five Points Station and Mercedes-Benz Stadium Station.
After the concert, fans are encouraged to exit the stadium immediately and locate the Mercedes-Benz or Vine City Stations to catch a ride. Bus shuttles will await those traveling southbound from the concert, from Vine City to West End Stations. To ensure the Bey Hive buzzes to their correct destinations safely, Transit Ambassadors and MARTA Police will be posted up throughout the rail stations to assist all riders.
Companies have made necessary transportation accommodations for the Bey Hive during the Renaissance World Tour. As previously reported by BLACK ENTERPRISE, Metro extended their train schedule by an hour following a delay in Queen Bey’s D.C. show earlier this month. Fans were forced to take shelter in place due to severe weather.
Earlier this year, MARTA hauled over 100,000 riders for Taylor Swift and Janet Jackson concerts.
The Renaissance Tour stops in downtown Atlanta on Aug. 11, 12, and 14. Concerts are scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., and gates will open at 6 p.m.
