Riding Marta


Since I’ve started riding Marta, Atlanta’s public transportation system, there have been three deaths – one was an accident, one person was stabbed to death after New Year’s Eve, and another person was shot to death.  I’ve taken all this in stride; however, two of the deaths occurred at the Five Points Station, a station that I will now be getting off at to go to my new job at the state capitol.  My level of concern has risen since my friend and I narrowly missed seeing the stabbing of the victim since we rode the Marta into town to watch the Peach drop on New Year’s Eve.  The third death occurred on the platform just before 3 p.m. on Friday.  I sincerely hope that these deaths at Five Points Station (or any station) stop immediately.  -signed, concern rider
