MARTA rolls out 'Respect' to crack down on unruly riders

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Throughout the next few weeks, MARTA will be rolling out a new initiative aimed at cracking down on bad behavior on its bus, trains and terminals.

The public transit authority is launching its Ride With Respect campaign to end disruptions like playing loud music, spitting, littering or fighting.

"Moving forward, MARTA will no longer tolerate bad behavior on our system," said Frederick L. Daniels, Jr., Chairman of the MARTA Board. "We are asking the community, elected officials and customers to join us in raising the bar and reinforcing the expectation that everyone deserves a safe, efficient and enjoyable ride on MARTA."

MARTA says that means passengers should expect to see more officers at its stations. There will also be more security cameras on MARTA buses and trains.
