Transportation from Hartsfield-Jackson Airport (ATL) to Hotels via MARTA
MARTA- Inexpensive and effective way to get to the hotel. Several ATN staff have navigated the trip and have distilled it here for you.
From Hartsfield-Jackson Airport (ATL), follow signs to the MARTA station. You will need to purchase a Breeze card at the kiosks if you haven’t arranged for one ahead of time.
You have 2 choices:
Catch the Breeze that’s right for you:
|Breeze Card: Best Value for Frequent and Occasional MARTA Riders|
|A NEW Breeze Card is $1: Additional fare or value must be loaded on the card at the time of initial purchase.
For example, if you are only traveling to the hotel and back to the airport, purchase a Breeze Ticket and load BOTH trips onto it. If you are planning more trips, a Breeze ticket is re-loadable and the best option.
All trips are $2.50. There are no zones like some other cities.
More information can be found at their website.
PLEASE NOTE: You can purchase a Breeze Card and have it sent to you in the mail. Please allow 2 weeks to receive the card. Then you can preload it and avoid the stop at the kiosks.
FROM THE AIRPORT STATION
Take any train. The airport stop is the last stop for the Gold and Red lines so you can only go the correct way. Either Gold or Red will take you to the correct stop- Peachtree Center. It is the 8th stop if all stops are open. It follows the Four Points stop. Here is a map and schedule:
Once at Peachtree Center, you can go through the Peachtree Center food court area and follow the signs to the Hyatt. There are approximately 2-3 places with a total of 10 steps you will have to carry your luggage up. Be aware if you have limitations to lifting your luggage.
The other option is to leave the station and go up the escalator to the street. (Very steep long escalator for those with height or tunnel issues.) At the top, you will be on Peachtree Street. Turn Right/Go North on Peachtree Street, crossing John Portman Blvd, and you will be at the Hyatt. It is sidewalks with no stairs.
Either route does involve escalators in the MARTA system. Typically, travelers who are not actively climbing or descending the escalators should stay to the right to allow moving travelers to get by.
As always, please check for any changes and know that times and locations could change.
ATN will keep this updated as we learn any new information. This was done by those of us who have navigated it in the spring and summer of 2019.
