ATL: The MARTA Breeze card

ATL: The MARTA Breeze card, originally uploaded by ultraclay!.

What little I've heard about getting around in Atlanta I've mostly heard in discussions about urban sprawl gone amok. So, when planning this trip, I presumed we'd have to take a cab to get to our hotel. Apparently not.

We're on the MARTA train as I type this heading downtown to a station just down the block from our hotel. The $2.25 fare beats whatever the cab was going to charge, certainly.

The trains, the map and the card machines are all like the BART. The one thing that's really interesting to me is the fare card, which seems to have RFID.

Just as I was about to start fiddling with the turnstile to figure out how to swipe a card with no apparent magnetic strip, the gate opened.
