Reynoldstown is an Atlanta neighborhood to the east of downtown and just south of Inman Park. It borders the Edgewood Retail District, which provides grocery, retail and restaurant options, and the area was originally settled by freed slaves. The nearest MARTA station is Inman Park/Reynoldstown on the blue/green rail line. If you are transferring trains at the Five Points station, follow signs to the Eastbound platform and board either an Indian Creek or Candler Park train.
Once at the station, follow the signs pointing to Reynoldstown after exiting the fare gates (on the left). This exit provides access to a parking lot, the neighborhood and closest walking route to the retail district.

The nearest MARTA station is Inman Park on the blue/green rail line. Bus 4, bus 34 and bus 107 that depart from the station go close to the area. Exit the bus where Moreland Avenue intersects with Glenwood Avenue, the second stoplight after crossing I-20. After exiting the bus, stay on the same side of the street (west) and walk down Glenwood Avenue for about 10 minutes.
Bus 74 that departs from the Five Points Station also has a stop directly next to Glenwood Park, though the time on the bus is a little longer. However, the reverse commute is a great option for residents who work downtown or midtown who wish to take MARTA to work.
