How to get there
If you’re in a car, hop on I-75/I-85 southward from the city center (or ride the I-285 loop around the perimeter toward the south). Follow the big green signs to the Domestic Terminal (Exit 238) or the International Terminal (Exit 239).
If you’re near a bus or train station, board Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) on the red or gold line; the airport MARTA station is inside the Domestic Terminal. Convenient!

New for 2021: Rideshare operations
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has designated a specific area for pickup and drop-off by rideshare (Uber, Lyft, etc.) near domestic ticketing and baggage claim, separate from the main park and ride area.
When meeting a rideshare driver at the Domestic Terminal, head to the North Lower level. Rideshare is adjacent to the North Economy parking deck. You’ll find bright orange directional signage throughout the Domestic Terminal to help guide you to this new area, or you can ask any of the airport’s customer service agents in green coats.
