MARTA to Market: The Convenient, Budget-Friendly and Safe Way to Travel in Atlanta

If you are flying to Atlanta for Atlanta Market, or just don’t feel like driving your car around unfamiliar streets, you can easily take MARTA, our local rapid transportation system. Not only will it take you from the Airport to our buildings, but it can also unlock some of Atlanta’s best neighborhoods, restaurants and attractions for you. Plus, it’s an inexpensive alternative to in-city parking or rideshare.


MARTA trains, buses and Streetcar connect Atlanta’s neighborhoods and business centers. The trains slice through the city on four lines – Red, Gold, Green and Blue, in the four cardinal directions. The Red and Gold lines run north and south while the Blue and Green lines shuttle east and west. The trains operate from about 5 a.m. until 1 a.m., so they can transport you during all your waking hours while visiting for Market.


Our buildings are located at the Peachtree Center station, which is on both the Red and Gold lines. These "double track" through Downtown south to the Airport and split to the north and northeast. Along these routes are the Midtown and Buckhead districts, complete with their distinct street vibes and dining scenes.

The Blue and Green lines traverse east to west, through communities like Vine City, Inman Park and Decatur. If you’re traveling along these routes to Market, you will need to transfer at Five Points Station to head north. Luckily, you can catch either the Red or Gold train when it arrives.

The Atlanta Streetcar links Downtown with the Sweet Auburn neighborhoods. This loop can show you some of Atlanta’s history, such as the MLK Jr. National Historic Site, and favorite dining options like The Municipal Market.


Atlanta Market is located merely steps from MARTA. Board from any train station and take the Red or Gold line to Peachtree Center Station. Exit toward John Portman Blvd/AmericasMart (there will be signs directing you) and take the escalator up to the street level. You can enter Building 1 to your right or turn left toward the street and walk past Ray’s to the main entrance doors.


To ride MARTA, you’ll need to buy a Breeze Card, then add cash value or trips (each trip is $2.50) to the card. You can do this at a kiosk inside one of the stations or download the Breeze Mobile 2 app (a card costs $1 but the app is free). A good option for Market attendees is a Day Pass, which gives you unlimited rides for a day. This is perfect if you plan to visit more in Atlanta than just Market.

Trains run on each line every 20 minutes. However, that frequency doubles along double-tracking lines, as they receive trains from both lines. Buses have varying frequencies, but typically pick up every 30 minutes. The Streetcar hits its stops in 15-minute intervals.

Most hotels in Midtown and Downtown are walkable to a MARTA station but you can utilize the Park and Ride option if you’re not within walking distance. Most stations at the end of each line have free or inexpensive daily parking.


MARTA is a convenient, budget-smart, and safe way to get around Atlanta during your visit to Market. Not only does it take you from your in-town hotel straight to Market, but it will also enhance your experience of the city by connecting you to great dining and nightlife. It provides a convenient way to travel around the city without your car and our infamous Atlanta traffic. MARTA also has police force and station attendants who look after riders and answer questions about the system. As an Atlanta visitor, MARTA can be a great resource during your stay.
