After a time where keeping distance and being careful of human contact has been the new norm, we can finally move around more freely and connect with each other again. Railtalk-Re-Connect invites you to use  magnetic letters to play and connect with your fellow MARTA travelers. Leave a positive message, write a loving word or simply read along.

From May to October 2022, thousands of magnetic letters will be found at seven different MARTA stations. Designers Bouke Bruins and Wouter Corvers, “We strive to promote as much interaction as possible between all layers of society, the more diverse the better.”

Find your favorite spot at your MARTA station, share a beautiful message, and reconnect!
