The Best Way to Travel Around Atlanta
If you have never been to Atlanta, let me just warn you that the traffic is horrendous. The people in Atlanta are always on the go. No matter what time of day you are traveling the streets of Atlanta, you will encounter traffic.
You could definitely,
- Rent a car and drive around the city. This is a great way to learn the city and see some hidden treasures.
- Uber and Lyft are viable options.
But the best way to get around Atlanta is to use their public transportation, MARTA. MARTA operates both bus and rail lines throughout the city and into nearby suburbs. You, honestly, can get anywhere in the city of Atlanta via Marta.
