MARTA to the Lakewood Amphitheatre

Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood is an outdoor concert venue south of downtown Atlanta at 2002 Lakewood Avenue SE.  The closest MARTA station is the Lakewood MARTA Station on the south red/gold rail line.  At the station, riders can transfer for free to one of the below bus routes to reach the venue.  Tell the bus driver your destination, or pull the cord on the sides of the bus to indicate a stop.  It is about a 10 minute ride to/from the station for both routes:

Bus 42 – Stops near both Lakewood entrances and is the most frequent bus route to the amphitheatre.  Exit the bus at Langford Parkway and Lakewood Way for the Lakewood Entrance (all will call available) or exit at Pryor Road and Pryor Circle right before the stoplight for the Pryor Box Office (Ticketmaster will call only).  This stop is the shortest walk to the main amphitheatre entrance.  Bus 42 also continues on to the Five Points Station, so for your return trip, you could get on the first bus that arrives in either direction to reconnect with the rail line.

Bus 178- Exit at Lakewood Avenue and Macon Drive.  All will call tickets can be picked up here.

Helpful Tips

  • If you don’t ride MARTA often, purchase a Breeze card with a roundtrip fare at the start of your trip.  Buses do accept cash (one way fare is $2.50) should you need to pay that way, but bus drivers cannot make change and you do not get a free transfer to the train.
  • Trains stop running shortly after 1 a.m., so plan to be back at the station by 12:30 a.m. to allow enough time for rail travel.  It is better to return earlier than later, as the area isn’t as safe as being in Midtown or Buckhead.
  • You can also use Uber to get to and from the venue for the last leg of the trip.  Use promo code MARTAGuide to get $20 off your first ride.
