ATLANTA (AP) — Metro Atlanta's transit system is aiming to make more money from its parking lots at rail stations.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://on-ajc.com/1xdTK9p) that the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority has advertised for a contractor to help the agency make more money from the parking lots.
MARTA now offers free parking at 23 of its 38 rail stations, as long as vehicles stay less than a day and drivers have a card showing they just used the transit system.
Drivers can pay to park longer-term in at least nine of those lots, for $5 to $8 a day.
Raising more money from parking lots is part of MARTA's strategic plan.
