Parking / MARTA

MARTA: The quickest, most hassle-free ride to the Dome

MARTA train passengers are encouraged to use the Dome/Philips/GWCC station for a quick hop to and from the North, South and East lines. Fans without reserved parking are strongly encouraged to take MARTA or other regional transit to the games to avoid expected heavy traffic on the highways and city traffic for other downtown activities.

*NOTE: in addition to the normal heavy traffic common in Atlanta, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta has a very large and heavily attended Christmas parade in downtown Atlanta from 10:30 AM to noon on Saturday, resulting in even more traffic. Please allow plenty of time to get to the Dome and the downtown area!!!*

MARTA offers free daily parking at 21 of its stations.
