Gilly will install 70 beverage vending machines throughout the system, stocked with sodas, tea, nutritional drinks and water. Beverage venders are already up and running in some stations with the remaining units being installed in all 38 over the next several weeks. Gilly will support MARTA's green initiatives by placing recycling receptacles.
Georgia's General Assembly passed legislation last year that made it legal to eat and drink non-alcoholic beverages at transit stations. MARTA officials said they eventually plan to expand the program by adding food kiosks.
