MARTA Red Line

MARTA Red Line MapThe MARTA red line travels north and south through Atlanta with a stop at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Stations are in major business centers including downtown Atlanta, Midtown, Buckhead and the Perimeter. Many Atlanta hotels, employers and attractions are near the red line as well as many of the city’s top restaurants and bars.

Service note: After 8:30 p.m., the red line only travels between North Springs and the Lindbergh Center MARTA stations. Take the gold line to Lindbergh Center and transfer if your final destination is Buckhead, Medical Center, Dunwoody, Sandy Springs or North Springs.
