The Avondale MARTA station is just outside of downtown Decatur on the east-west rail line at 915 E. Ponce de Leon Avenue (see area map). There are free daily parking lots off of E. Ponce de Leon Avenue and College Avenue.
It is mainly a residential area, though there is a collection of businesses and restaurants in East Decatur Station off of College Avenue. The Dekalb Farmers Market is about a 25 minute walk away.
Bus routes travel down E. Ponce de Leon to Tucker, to Emory/medical centers, North Dekalb Mall, North Druid Hills and Columbia Drive (see listing of bus routes).
If you are coming from the airport, downtown, midtown or otherwise north/south of the city, you must take the train to the Five Points station and follow the signs to the Eastbound platform. From there, board the train marked “Indian Creek” to get to the Avondale station. Otherwise, all trains departing from the Indian Creek station will stop at Avondale.
It takes 15 minutes to get to Five Points and 31-51 minutes to get to the airport.
