Any tips?
I've taken Uber from the Airport to North Marietta--and back. Easy, simple, and nice.

Maybe she meant a lot (or a bit) more time?

Yeah it may add a couple more minutes to the trip but it's not really a lot of work.

Saves $20 or so, and it's also more fun. Trains are cool. And it's less hectic trying to figure out the pickup. Getting picked up at Midtown station is a lot easier.

Plus I just like to do what little I can to support transit and MARTA. Would sure be awesome if there was a NW line.

I've taken uber to the airport twice (from smyrna/Vinings) and it was great both times. Way better than a more expensive non uber shuttle van that showed up an hour late and almost made me miss my flight. I'm sure there are cheaper alternatives but what's nice is at least leaving from the airport I think there is a cap on how much your fare can be (if traffic is really bad)
