SkyTrain Route Stops

The ATL SkyTrain stops in three places:

Airport Station

What’s at the airport? Well, obviously, the airport is at the airport, but that’s not all! You’ll also find over 300 restaurants and retailers (some of which you can get to without going through security), plus an art gallery—and best of all, the Airport Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) Station, connecting Hartsfield-Jackson to all of Greater Atlanta. You’ll find the MARTA station right next to the doors leading to the ATL SkyTrain station at the baggage terminal, so once you reach the airport, the transition couldn’t be easier.

Next Stop, Gateway Center (GICC Station)

Here, you'll find...

Here’s a local secret: to attend a meeting at the GICC, basketball game or other event at the Gateway Center Arena without driving or parking hassles, you can hop on MARTA from anywhere, ride on down to Airport Station, and switch to the adjacent ATL SkyTrain. It's a quick, free connection that drops you right where you need to be. The ATL SkyTrain never stops, but check MARTA’s hours before you go, because those trains take a break overnight.

Hungry? Let the SkyTrain Take You

Enjoy dining options on both the Gateway Center Campus and ATL Airport's domestic terminal atrium with a two-minute ATL SkyTrain ride.
