Atlanta Airport Arrivals

If you are arriving at the Atlanta airport, all trains (red and gold) go to downtown, Midtown and Buckhead. If you are traveling to the Buckhead, Medical Center, Dunwoody, Sandy Springs or North Springs MARTA stations, board a “North Springs” train up until 8:30 p.m. After 8:30 p.m., get on the first available train and transfer to the red line at the Lindbergh Center MARTA station.

Traveling to the Airport

If you are traveling to the airport, almost all southbound trains travel to the airport. The only exception is in the evening after 8:30 p.m. on the red line. If you are departing from the North Springs, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Medical Center or Buckhead MARTA stations, the southbound train only travels as far as the Lindbergh Center MARTA station. Passengers are asked to exit the train and wait at Lindbergh Center for the next southbound train, which is usually no more than five minutes away.

If you are departing from a station on the blue or green rail line, travel to the Five Points station and follow the signs to the southbound train platform (down one level) to reach the airport.

Note: If you have an international flight, Concourse F in the domestic terminal is the only terminal next to the MARTA station with international flights. Otherwise, please use the free shuttle outside the MARTA station to reach the international terminal building.
