Transportation

Guests should park in the RED DECK. The entrance to the deck is located at 285 Andrew Young International Blvd NW, Atlanta, GA 30313. Level 7 of the garage has a pedestrian bridge with direct access to Building B. Cost for parking is $15 per day if purchased onsite, or $12 if purchased in advance via this link beginning in January (will probably be able to provide a better link in a few months once our exact event is up on parkmobile, they don’t put events up until 6 months out): https://app.parkmobile.io/venue/georgia-world-congress-center/events

Shuttles will drop off at the transportation depot that is directly in front of Building B, between State Farm Arena and the International Plaza. Once guests depart the bus, they need to head directly across the street and enter the Building B Lobby. 

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) is Atlanta’s public transportation system comprised of a bus and rail system that connects all parts of Atlanta. A single $2.50 fare covers one-way bus or rail trips, including transfers.

The GWCC is MARTA accessible at two stations on the blue and green rail lines: GWCC/CNN station and Vine City Marta Station.

MARTA also connects directly to the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The rail station is located at the north end of the airport, near baggage claim. This service offers the quickest and least expensive way to get to and from the airport to downtown Atlanta. If you are traveling from the airport to the GWCC, you should can transfer from the red or gold line at the Five Points station to the first westbound train on the green or blue line and ride one stop to the GWCC/CNN station.
