ATLANTA–MARTA spokesperson Julius Orange announced this morning that the long-secret underwater transit cars would finally see action this evening due to expected heavy rains of “Holy Shit” magnitude.

The cars are produced economically, by applying a rolled substance described by Orange as having a metallic appearance on the outside supported by a cloth substrate. A highly adherent, or “sticky” substance coats the underside of the material.

The substance is unrolled, then pressed firmly across any seams where water might leak into a normal MARTA train car, thus rendering it waterproof and fit for underwater travel.
