I will be visiting Atlanta this coming week and staying in Union City near the airport. I would like to travel into Downtown Atlanta on Tuesday to do some typical tourist sightseeing. Which Marta station is best to park my car in and ride the train into Downtown from Union City? I am looking for a station nearby and one with the best parking availability. Any advice would be appreciated!

College Park Station adjacent to the Airport, right off of I-85 a few minutes north of Union City.

Does parking at these stations regularly reach capacity? Or should I not have much of a problem getting a spot?

Depends on day of the week and time of the day.

On a weekday (Tuesday). I was thinking of getting there around 9:30am. How bad would that usually be?

It will be near capacity. Most of the Southside commuters arrive between 6 and 7:30 to the lot.

Plenty of spaces, you just have a further walk in my experience.

Yeah - College Park station on a teusday at 930 is likely to be full, since it's the first lot that Commuters from South of the Airport can park at. Try it, but if it doesn't work, go up main street a mile or so, and use the lot at East Point Station that seems to act like overflow parking for the southern commuters.

I have always had better luck finding parking at the East Point station. It is really only a short distance up Main Street from College Park anyway. Good luck, I hope you enjoy your day.
