Atlanta Area

Atlanta’s 94,000 hotel rooms, including 10,000 in its downtown “convention corridor,” offer the city’s unique style of Southern Hospitality to 18 million visitors annually. With the interconnected facilities of the Georgia Dome, Georgia World Congress Center, Philips Arena and Centennial Olympic Park just blocks away from Atlanta’s “convention corridor” and tourist attractions, the contiguous nature of Atlanta’s downtown core is laid out to create a communal, festive atmosphere for all of the major sporting events Atlanta hosts.

Airport

The world’s most-traveled airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), has five runways that serve more than 92 million passengers a year. Nonstop flights are available to over 160 domestic destinations and nearly 70 international destinations in 45 countries.

 

Highways

Three  major  highways  (I-75,  I-85,  I-20)  converge  near  the  central business  district.  The perimeter highway (I-285) circles the city in a 62.7-mile loop. Georgia 400 is a six lane highway providing yet another route to the city via north metro Atlanta. Atlanta’s major highways contain High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) and High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes which decrease drive times during peak hours.

 

Rail

Abundant rail service makes Atlanta the rail center of the Southeast. With over 5,000 railroad  miles  in  Georgia,  the  area  is  the

largest  intermodal  hub  in  the  region.  Metro Atlanta is served by two class-one railroads (CSX  and  Norfolk  Southern)  and  over  20 short-line companies.

 

Mass Transit

Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA), with bus and rail services that cover over 1,000 miles, is the ninth-largest transit system  in the  U.S.  Cobb  County  Transit  (CCT)  &  Gwinnett  County  Transit  connect into MARTA at various points.
