Does MARTA go from the airport anywhere south (say, close to Peachtree City for example)?

Thanks,


Rich

There may be. Check out MARTA's site (itsmarta dot com) and you'll eventually be able to find bus routes to and from the stations. The site isn't easy to navigate, so it may take some time.

You can get closer to Peachtree City, but the timeframe is mindnumbing. I have tried both alternative options to pathetically, utter, frustration. There is a bus stop in Palmetto, which means you drive 12 miles instead of 20, but you ride forever. The parking is at a church, so it is secure and stuff.

I don't like the Park&Ride at Flat Shoals, doesn't feel safe, but I've never had anything happen. However, once again, the bus meanders all through south Fulton County, adding about an hour to the commute.

Depending on your destination, you may want to check out the Xpress line from Newnan. I would LOVE to use that system, but I work unconventional hours, and repeated solicitations to them have had no productive result. That again would be about a 12 mile drive vs. 20 or so. Their lack of interest in cooperating with nightside workers is ridiculously frustrating. People forget Atlanta is a 24-hour city.

If you mean the Xpress, NO.

Atlanta's excuse for transit is terminally annoying.

There's a stop in Newnan, Union City (park somewhere behind Shannon Mall :
xpressga - Union City, and Riverdale.

A great service that's NO good for overnighters, and this city forgets it houses aLOT of 24-hour businesses.

MARTA train stops at the Airport (last station). There are buses that travel further south.

Yes Atlanta transit is just terrible...especially considering that there is ONE U.S. city that offers 24-hour train service (NYC) and considering that MOST cities in the U.S. don't even have trains that service the local airport. Actually, most cities don't even have trains, period.

Atlanta transit is horrible.

People, think before you post nonsense!
