SunTrust Park is the new Atlanta Braves stadium in Cobb County. The stadium opens with Georgia Bull Dogs vs Missouri Tigers followed by the first Braves home game on April 14, 2017. Then on April 28, Billy Joel starts the season off as the first performer in the new venue (view tickets).
Next to the stadium is The Battery, a new mixed-use development with restaurants, shops, offices and housing for extra entertainment while you’re at the stadium. Unfortunately, neither location is very transit-accessible because Cobb County opted to not join the MARTA transit system, so rail was never built in the area. See below for the latest commute options.
Private Braves Shuttle
A private Braves shuttle service is planned, but route information is not available at this time. The website reports that the shuttle will stop at major points of interest in Metro Atlanta.
MARTA + Uber or Lyft
Uber and Lyft are very useful resources for getting to the new Braves stadium. There are three MARTA stations that are all about a 15-minute car ride away (that’s 15 minutes without traffic). Request a car at the Arts Center, Medical Center or the Dunwoody MARTA station.
New Uber riders can use promo code MARTAGuide to get $20 off your first ride or consider using UberPOOL to share a ride with other MARTA commuters or friends to reduce the cost.
CobbLinc Bus 10
Cobb County’s CobbLinc bus 10 departs from the Arts Center MARTA station and travels near SunTrust Park. It is free to transfer from MARTA to CobbLinc, but on the return trip you will need to have cash value on your Breeze Card to pay the fare. Be sure to add or have at least $2.50 in cash value on your Breeze Card at a MARTA station or online (MARTA trips or passes will not work).
Exit the bus at Cobb Parkway and Windy Ridge Road near the Taco Bell and Red Lobster, approximately 34 minutes away, and walk 10 minutes up Windy Ridge Parkway to the stadium.
MARTA Bus 12
MARTA bus 12 departs from the Midtown MARTA station and travels to the Cumberland Mall Transfer Center behind Cumberland Mall. This is a very long bus ride however, approximately 45 minutes. From there, connect with the new Cobb Circular shuttle to reach the stadium.
