2019 DSA Convention Delegates: Welcome to Atlanta!



MARTA (Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) is Atlanta’s public train and bus system. It runs 4:45 am until 1:00 am. The regular MARTA fare is $2.50 for a one-way trip. Fare must be added to a reloadable Breeze Card ($2) or a $1 disposable paper ticket. However, you may pay exact cash on buses only. You can purchase the fare card or ticket, along with fare, at all MARTA rail stations or online. (There are additional fare options and discounts for children, students, disabled individuals, senior citizens and groups)

Taking the bus? Download the MARTA On the Go app for up-to-date schedules and live mapping.

Protip: If you’re flying into Hartsfield-Jackson, you can take a MARTA train straight up to Peachtree Center Station to access the convention hotel.


The Atlanta Streetcar serves downtown and the Sweet Auburn district. You may purchase fare from vending machines at streetcar stops (cash, card), or you may load your fare onto an existing MARTA Breeze card.
