A rendering of a proposed makeover of the exterior of Five Points MARTA station in Downtown.

MARTA is seeking rider feedback on how to improve the appearance and experience at the Five Points and Garnett rail stations.

Riders who regularly use either station are asked to participate in onsite interactive surveys that will be used to help shape the enhancement plan. The surveys will take place Oct. 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and again from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Five Points station. On Oct. 28, the surveys will take place at Garnett from 7 to 9 a.m. and 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Directional signage leading users to survey locations will be placed throughout the stations.

Additionally, the project team will be collecting feedback at Georgia State University (GSU) on Oct. 28 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the GSU Library Plaza along Broad Street.

Individuals that do not ride MARTA or are unable to attend the aforementioned surveys are asked to provide their opinion by completing an online survey at www.atlantadowntown.com/MARTAmakeover.

The public can also tag station-specific photos that highlight potential issues to be addressed, provide their thoughts on potential improvements or join the conversation on social media using #MARTAmakeover.
