The Cobb County Department of Transportation’s transit division, CobbLinc, will transition to the use of MARTA’s Silver Breeze Cards next month to offer increased security and convenience to riders. Beginning Feb. 1, 2017, CobbLinc commuters may take advantage of a month-long promotional offer to purchase a Silver Breeze Card for $1.00—a 50 percent discount. The price of the card will return to $2.00 after the promotion period ends Feb. 28.
The new cards will be available for purchase at the CobbLinc office at 431 Commerce Park Drive in Marietta weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. as well as at MARTA station Breeze vending machines.
MARTA’s Silver Breeze Cards with stronger chip technology replace the Blue Breeze Cards, which will no longer be accepted after July 9. The switch allows for consistency across the region and provides commuters with a more secure way to store their fares. The reloadable, durable Silver Breeze Card can be registered for balance protection and is valid for three years from purchase. Free transfers from CobbLinc to MARTA will continue with the transition to the new cards.
“CobbLinc is committed to making commuting across Cobb County and throughout the region secure, accessible and convenient for residents,” said Vida Covington, CobbLinc division manager. “The switch to Silver Breeze Cards is a step toward progress. This promotion will make the transition simple for current commuters and new travelers alike.”
This shift will continue to connect regional transit partners—CobbLinc, MARTA, Gwinnett County Transit, and the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority—making traveling throughout metro Atlanta a transparent and straightforward process.
