It’s a direct 30 minute walk down North Avenue from the North Avenue MARTA station to Ponce City Market. However, the walk is in a transitional area and not the safest, especially after dark.

The better walk and bike option is via the Inman Park MARTA station. Walking time is also about 30 minutes, but the route involves neighborhood streets and the BeltLine Eastside Trail, which provide shelter from car traffic.

After exiting the fare gate at the Inman Park station, keep right and go down to street level. Walk straight ahead through the bus bay (where you can also rent Relay Bikes) to Edgewood Avenue. Walk about one block to Elizabeth Street and turn right. Elizabeth Street goes directly to the BeltLine (about four blocks away). Veer right once you reach the trail in order to reach Ponce City Market.
