State Farm Arena (formerly Philips Arena) is one of Atlanta’s major performance and sport venues conveniently next to the GWCC/CNN station on the blue and green rail line. It is the home arena of the Atlanta Hawks and Dream, or attend a concert or show here.


  1. Take a blue or green line train to the GWCC/CNN MARTA station. If you are traveling from the red or gold line, transfer to a westbound train at the Five Points MARTA station. Board the first westbound train (marked H.E. Holmes or Bankhead) and ride one stop.
  2. Follow the signs pointing to the State Farm Arena/Plaza to exit the station. You have the choice of going up a tall escalator or taking an elevator up to street level.
  3. One entrance to State Farm Arena is directly in front of the station. Or turn right or left to reach other entrances on the sides of the building (box office is to the right).
