    Very easy, fast and the cheapest way to get from the airport to downtown and vice versa.

    Takes about 1 hr 10 minutes to get to N Springs from the airport. Plan accordingly.

    Take either Gold or Red line to downtown ATL for just $2.50. Lines are parallel for first 13 stops.

    If you are heading over to midtown/Buckhead/perimeter direction, this is absolutely the best way to do it.

    You might have to wait for the train to leave, but any wait is better than driving in Atlanta (if my hair was long enough to grab hold of I'd've pulled it out in Wed's 5pm traffic).

    Visitors may not be aware that thanks to several layers of completely incompetent local governments, MARTA only goes to places you certainly don't want or need to get to, except downtown.
  • Tom A.
    Skip a taxi and take the MARTA. Way faster especially during rush hour.

    20 min wait is ridiculous when you have to pay so much to go only a few stations.

    This is the easiest and cheapest way to get into downtown. Don't bother hiring one of the shuttle services - a one-way trip on MARTA is only $2.50!

    Make sure you get your seat first or the passengers will cloud the train with there baggage. The walk way is always filled with luggages.

    Walk to the end of this station for a pretty good view of the jets landing. You can also see how crazy pick-up and drop-off gets.

    If you are visiting Atlanta definitely get a day/week pass. Definitely helps to get around if you but a City Pass

    Keep your Breeze card; you'll need it with you as long as you ride the system. If you're going downtown OR riding after 7 p.m. it doesn't matter which train you ride, otherwise it does.

    Marta is ok if your not a frequent rider. If your a reg. pay online, CC machine down all the time.. Employees are rude as they deal with negativity all day. Make sure your early or your not on time!

    If you're just visiting like me, be sure to take MARTA from the airport into the city. Only $2.50 one way and beats a $20 cab ride.

    If you love in the burbs, use the Park & Ride. It costs less than your gas alone, and you can relax for an hour instead of fighting traffic!

    MARTA is safe leaving the airport, as there are a lot of airport people on the train. Overall though, MARTA does not appear to be safe...

    If you use the MARTA often (e.g. for conventions), buy the MARTA card for $1 and keep it for future years.

    Here's a tip......if you don't know where you are going, ask a MARTA Employee instead of a random passenger on the train!!

    The south end of the platform (away from the direction the trains enter/leave) is the closest to an observation deck that you'll find at ATL.

    To the girl who claims that MARTA is "safe and as clean as a subway system gets"...clearly you have not ridden MARTA too often.

    Look at the train map to figure out which train you should be on. Then read the marquee on the outside of the train!

    Going to the airport? Park at Sandy Springs for five bucks a day! It's 42 minutes to the airport, which is as fast as or faster than driving in the morning and evening traffic!

    If you are taking the train to Buckhead, Medical Center, Dunwoody, Sandy Springs or North Springs and it is after 7pm, get on the first train that comes and transfer at the Lindbergh station.

    Riding MARTA is better for the environment than taking a cab as well as faster than getting stuck in Atlanta's infamous traffic congestion.

    MARTA is perfectly safe and as clean as a subway system gets. Support public transportation and save a ton of money by riding MARTA to your Atlanta destination!

    MARTA sucks. Historically, up escalator has been broken 50% of the time. This system is poorly managed.

    If you lost your ticket or card you can still get pass the gate. Simply wait for the gates to close and then walk up really close to it (almost kissing it) and it will open. :-\

    For MARTA, you must have your ticket to get in and out, so don't throw it away.

    Book a round trip fair before flying. This will help avoid long lines at the pay machines.
