ATLANTA (AP) - Leaders of Atlanta’s public transportation system say bus service will be canceled and rail service will run on a weekend schedule as snow and ice move into the region.

Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority spokesman Lyle Harris says service will begin at 4:35 a.m. Wednesday and trains are expected to run about every 15 minutes until around 2 a.m. Thursday. Rail passengers are asked to plan for delays.

Officials say the agency’s decision to cut bus service is in line with Gov. Nathan Deal’s request for drivers to stay off the roads so Department of Transportation crews and others can spread road treatment materials.

Although MARTA buses won’t be operating on scheduled routes, officials say some will be deployed as warming stations for drivers, truckers and others.
