Getting Around Atlanta


Getting to Atlanta is easy as it is the site of the world's busiest airport, the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The city is almost entirely encircled by Interstate 285. Three other major interstate highways -- I-20, I-85 and I-75 -- intersect in Atlanta with the latter two forming the Downtown Connector. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) forms the basis of the city's public transportation infrastructure with heavy rail and bus service. A light rain streetcar and Amtrak service round out the public transit options.
