In the sometimes labyrinthine stations of Atlanta’s MARTA system, it can take several minutes to make it from the entrance to train level. Dawdle for a few seconds and you could easily miss your train and have to wait twenty minutes for the next one.
MARTA Alerts, a new Foursquare connected app from Andrew Watson, aims to help by letting you know when the next train will be arriving at your station. You’ll see it in the connected apps sections after you check in to the station.
The app currently only works on stations to the North and Northeast, but more will be added soon.
If you’re in Atlanta, give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments.
