How to get where you need to go

Just until Scotty gets the transporter back up and running

Dragon Con Transport

One of the first hurdles of attending any convention is simply getting there! Luckily for travelers, Atlanta is one of the most accessible cities in the world by plane, train, automobile, and bus – just not the Starship Enterprise. Yet.

For those of you planning on spending some time in Atlanta sight-seeing, we strongly encourage you to review a map of the city prior to arriving. Atlanta is well-known for its confusing layout, and its fondness for naming streets either “Peachtree” or “Piedmont.”

Air Travel

Hartsfield International Airport, just fifteen minutes south of downtown Atlanta and the convention district, is a two-hour flight (or less) from 80% of the population of the United States.

MARTA

Atlanta boasts the second-highest rated public transportation system in North America. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, MARTA, offers rapid rail service directly from Hartsfield International Airport to the Peachtree Center Rail Station with covered access directly to the Hyatt Regency and Marriott Marquis.

Passenger Train Service: AMTRAK

Amtrak‘s Crescent runs daily from New York to Atlanta, and daily between Atlanta and New Orleans. It stops in Midtown Atlanta at 1688 Peachtree Street. This is four miles north of the downtown convention district. The Crescent offers full dining-car service as well as a lounge car (with a smoking section), sleeping-car accommodations, and a comfortable, spacious (especially compared to airline seats) coach service.

To get to the convention after arriving at Brookwood Station, you can take MARTA (Bus) from Church Street/North Dekalb Mall Station to the Arts Center MARTA Station (free transfer), and then take a Southbound (Gold) MARTA train to the Peachtree Center Rail Station. Taxi service is also available. The total distance is not more than two miles.
