Buc shuttles reduced the number of stops on the Piedmont-Lenox line in early July. Buc shuttles now connect directly from Piedmont Road to the Buckhead MARTA station, eliminating stops along the way on Peachtree Road.

The changes went into effect July 6. They were brought on by the Buckhead Community Improvement District’s decision to reduce the operating budget for the buc. Jim Durrett, Buckhead CID’s executive director, said the cuts will save the CID about $500,000 a year.

Livable Buckhead, the nonprofit that operates the shuttles, said the revised Piedmont-Lenox line will continue to operate Monday through Friday during morning and evening commute hours, with shuttles running approximately every 12 minutes.

The buc shuttle connecting AT&T’s Lenox Park facilities to the Lenox MARTA station and surrounding areas will not be affected, Livable Buckhead said in its newsletter.
