Does anyone know the best way to get from Marietta to Alpharetta taking back roads without getting on the interstate? Also is there a way to get from Cobb County to a Marta station to get to Alpharetta? Any suggestions are helpful.

Don't know any back roads. My co-worker does that commute and he says it takes him an hour on a good day.

No Marta stations go to Alpharetta. The closest one is North Springs.

Depend on where you live in Marietta.

If you are in the East Cobb, you could use Sandy Plain NE, Hardcrabble Road then Rucker to GA400. That's what my coworker use.

I used to take Johnson Ferry south to the Sandy Springs area, go around SS (avoiding Roswell Rd.) and you're pretty close to GA400 there. I lived in north Buckhead/Sandy Springs, and worked on Johnson Ferry and Roswell in East Cobb. There was another road (Abernathy?) that intersected JF before Sandy Springs, and it went east toward Alpharetta.
Good luck, get a city street map and explore a couple of different routes! It all depends on the time of day, too.
