ATLANTA (AP) - Metro Atlanta's transit agency is considering running more frequent trains.
 
MARTA plans a Sept. 19 public hearing on its proposal, which would include more trains during rush hours.
 
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/17NjFat) that the idea is being considered as MARTA plans to reinvest in rail service after years of service cuts and fare hikes.
 
The improvements proposed to a MARTA planning committee on Monday would add service on all four lines on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
 
Trains on the Red and Gold Lines, which extend to North Springs and to Doraville respectively, would run every 10 minutes instead of every 15 as they do now.
 
MARTA is short for Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.
