The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority rail line (MARTA) travels to/from the
airport to downtown.  This is a great choice for getting to and from the airport.  The
Atlanta Airport Shuttle also transports passengers to hotels all over the city in a
minibus.  All the major car rental agencies have desks at the baggage claim level.

Driving in Atlanta can be infuriating and confusing.  You'll often find yourself sitting in
traffic jams, and it's easy to get disoriented - a good map is really a valuable asset.  
MARTA is a good option if you are staying in town and have a lot of time as
sometimes the schedules may not be dependable.  If you're staying outside the
Perimeter,  you'll definitely need a car.

Because Atlanta is such a car-centric city, two hour metered street parking is usually
plentiful.  Many parking garages offer reasonable rates (usually around $10 per day) for
daylong parking.  Parking is free at most shopping malls.

MARTA operates a small but efficient rail system and an extensive bus network in
Atlanta and some of the surround in communities.  The rail system has only 2 major
lines but manages to get close to many of the major sites.
