MARTA will mark its 35th anniversary on Monday, June 30, at 11 a.m. with an event at the Sandy Springs station called “The Way We Rode.”

Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul will open the event along with remarks from MARTA GM/CEO Keith T. Parker and keynote speech from Egbert Perry, CEO of The Integral Group and Chairman of the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae).

“The Way We Rode” will include an exhibit of vintage and modern-day buses, displays that chronicle special moments over the years, and an overview of MARTA’s impact on the region it has served for more than three decades. A video tribute to MARTA’s history will feature interviews with former President Jimmy Carter, U.S. Congressman John Lewis and community leader/MARTA Board Member, Juanita Abernathy.

Immediately following the event, refreshments will be served. Guests are encouraged to take the MARTA Red Line to the Sandy Springs Station.
