Over three electrifying days, Perimeter’s three MARTA stations—Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, and Medical Center—transformed into concert venues with performances from talented local musicians.

‘Rhythm + Rails’ Paves the Way for Commuter Connections
‘Rhythm + Rails’ wasn’t just about the music; it was a movement towards championing alternative transit options in a district that boasts unparalleled access and direct connections for the region via Perimeter’s three MARTA stations. In a first-of-its-kind initiative, Perimeter Connects provided over 200 10-trip MARTA passes to new and current riders who registered online during a two-week promotional period. This initiative supports the broader goal of advancing more accessible and sustainable commuting experiences in the Perimeter district.
“Hearing live music as I approached my station and listening while I waited for my train home was a real treat,” said Amy I also appreciated the free 10-trip pass!” – Amy Sheffield, ChildPlus Software
