Transit Tips and Directions to Atlanta Destinations
MARTA Long-term Parking
In addition to free daily parking at most MARTA stations, you can also take advantage of long-term parking. For $5 or $8 per day, you can leave your car at designated stations and lots overnight and ride the train directly to the airport or to another destination.
How it Works
When you arrive at one of the stations that offer long-term parking, you will need to take a parking ticket and park in the long-term parking area (if you don’t need overnight parking, park in the daily lots so you won’t be charged). The parking ticket records the date and time of your arrival, so when you return to your car and present your ticket on departure, payment is calculated based on the length of stay.
MARTA accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and cash at all long-term parking locations. Be advised that you will get charged for part days and for the first day after 15 minutes of being parked.
You can leave your car in a long-term parking area up to 45 days. Additionally, all overnight parking areas are open 24 hours except for Lenox and Brookhaven, which close at midnight.
