This year the Super Bowl is in the new Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The Super Bowl is one of the highest attended events in the United States with approximately 70,000 expected to attend the game and more than 150,000 visiting the city. With such a large amount of people in the area, there are some things to expect during next weekend.

One of the major things to be prepared for during Super Bowl weekend is traffic. The vice president of the Super Bowl committee, Amy Patterson, says they have plans to account for this such as detours and urging people to use Marta instead of driving.

CBS has said to”expect traffic to be four to five times what we normally see” in certain areas and that we should be prepared “to see a lot of buses, corporate shuttles, black cars and ride share.” With such a large influx of people expect things like Marta or even Uber to be backed up during Super Bowl weekend.

Marta has taken many measures to keep everyone safe and get them to the game. Marta has implemented a “load-and-go” system to help manage the platforms and keep them less crowded. Marta will also be using their Special Operations Response Team as an extra security measure with things like bomb-sniffing dogs and a 45-foot Command Vehicle to give police officers better mobility as the crowds rush to the stadium on Sunday.
