Travel & Transportation

Airport Serving Atlanta

The Georgia World Congress Center is located 12 miles from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (code: ATL) and a 20-minute drive to downtown Atlanta.  

Several national and international airlines service the Atlanta Airport. 

Airport Taxis, Ride Share & MARTA

Metered taxis are available outside both airport terminals. Flat fee taxi rides are offered to the Central Business District for around $30.

MARTA Train on red and gold lines operates every 8 minutes from the end of the domestic terminal and takes 15 minutes to reach the city center.


Rideshare drivers will pick up passengers at the North and South economy lots, which are a short walk from baggage claim. Passengers will proceed through baggage claim toward the Georgia Lottery booth for access to the lower-level escalators.
