MARTA to the MLK Day March and Rally

The Martin Luther King Jr. March and Rally takes place annually on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in downtown Atlanta. Open to all, the march assembles above the Peachtree Center MARTA Station at Peachtree and Baker Streets at 1:15 p.m. 

Note that MARTA trains and buses will operate on Saturday schedules on the holiday.

Train Directions

  1. Take a red or gold line train to the Peachtree Center MARTA Station
  2. Use any exit to leave the station — the John Portman Blvd exit is closer to the march lineup area

If your starting station is on the blue or green line, transfer at the Five Points MARTA station to the first northbound train or walk from Five Points. Exit the station via Peachtree Street, turn left, and walk about four blocks.


It is free to park in MARTA daily lots around the city. View MARTA parking options to plan your trip.
