    Thanks! Is this a list you plan on maintaining long term? – wogsland Mar 1 '17 at 14:35
  • I'm planning on maintaining it in conjunction with the MARTA hackathons and resources posted in the Code for Atlanta Marta slack channel. I'd love others to contribute as well if they find useful data resources. – Loren Mar 1 '17 at 15:42
  • Generally the StackExchange folks like information to be in the answer rather than linked to from the answer, but the only thing that can answer this question is links. So I'm not sure how this will play out. Or even if this beta site will still be here in a year... – wogsland Mar 1 '17 at 15:45
  • I agree that inline would be easier to use. It's just harder to maintain... I guess I could inline the current data section of the readme and link to it for updates/additional links. – Loren Mar 1 '17 at 15:51
  • Github's flavor of markdown isn't too too different from StackOverflow's, right? – wogsland Mar 1 '17 at 15:53

MARTA's Open Data Portal is probably the best place to start. It has links to documentation for MARTA's bus and rail APIs as well as data released for their quarterly hackathons. Additionally they have a python library on github for accessing the APIs.

Additional transit information can be found through the municipal.systems API.

Code for Atlanta also maintains a more general list of open data resources that includes transit information.
