Public Transportation Accidents
Many Atlanta residents rely on public transportation to commute every day. It’s important for the bus drivers and Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) operators to ensure the safety of the passengers and others on property when utilizing the public transportation system. In fact, these transportation services are held to a higher standard of care because they are entrusted to transport passengers and members of the public.
While Atlanta bus and train accidents are uncommon, they can occur and may result in serious injuries to passengers.
