Howdy, hoping some of ya'll can give me some input on the best way to access an event at the GA Dome. It's on a Tuesday night and I"m coming down from the NE, Gainesville direction.

I've never used MARTA, is that a good option? Drive down to a MARTA station around Gwinett and use that to get in/out of downtown?

I don't mind paying to park, just not sure how the parking traffic would be.

Best option really is to come down to the Doraville Station in Doraville, then ride the train in.

Unless how many folks are we talking? If its just one person I dont think it makes sense to drive in, but if you have a car full of folks I think its about a push as far as the gas it takes to get in there and then parking and everything else in comparison to MARTA.

Just remember, The Ga Dome is owned and operated by the State of Georgia, so it is off limits.

Thanks for the feedback.

I really prefer to drive in if its not going to be a huge headache finding parking. I'm just so accustomed to having a vehicle nearby that I don't think I'd feel all that comfortable otherwise. Especially with those prohibitions already mentioned.

So if I did use MARTA from Doraville, does anyone know how long the trip down to the station at the Ga dome is?

Guess you can tell I'm waffling on driving vs MARTA... I plan to look at GA Navigator a few days before for road construction advisories and such.

Yes take Marta, it's very convenient.
