Atlanta’s MARTA public transit system is an excellent, easy, safe, and cost-effective way to reach the convention. Furry Weekend Atlanta’s new location in downtown Atlanta is only half a block from the Peachtree Center MARTA Station.
Fares for any ride on MARTA are $2.50 per ride. If you don’t already have a Breeze Card, there is a one time $2 fee for a reloadable card on your first purchase. Alternatively, you can purchase a non-reloadable Breeze Ticket for $1. Breeze Cards and Breeze Tickets can be purchased at any MARTA station using cash or major credit cards.
There are signs to the Marriott Marquis in the Peachtree Center Station. Any MARTA employee will happily assist you with directions.
Alternate MARTA directions
If you don’t want to walk outside, you can also exit the station into the Peachtree Center mall. Walk through the food court and follow the signs to the Marriott Marquis. You can cross the sky bridge straight from the mall into the Marriott!
Parking at MARTA Stations
Keep in mind that there is free daily and cheap long-term parking available at many MARTA stations! A full list of stations that have parking is available here. These prices range from $5 to $8 per day so, if you are traveling light, looking to save some money and not opposed to being a few miles away from your car, you may consider parking it and taking the train in.
