How to Reach Atlanta

How to get in and get around Atlanta

Atlanta is very walk able within all it’s district. But if you’re going for a longer stretch, the MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) system is just brilliant. It works for both rail and buses. Ask around and see where you can get a Breeze Card (rail stations vending machines, Airport Ride Stores, Linden burgh Centre and Five Point Stations).

Rides are cheap ($2.50) and there are unlimited pass options ($9 for 1 day, $19 for 4 days, $23.75 for 7 days). The Red and Gold lines run north-south; the Blue and Green lines run east-west. They cross as the Five Points Station. If you’re using a taxi, it’s best to book it ahead. If you’re driving, the rush hours are 6:30 am - 9:30 am and 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm. Also, Atlanta addresses are confusing as anything. Check maps very, very carefully.
