The best and easiest way to get to the 2019 APSE Summer Conference in Atlanta is through Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
For those of you flying in, you will find a MARTA (Atlanta’s mass transit) station right off baggage claim. Trains run every 20 minutes.
Take the train to the Five Points station. There you will change trains (take train toward H.E. Holmes) you will travel one stop where you will get off at the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center stop.
Leave the station toward Centennial Olympic Park Dr. Turn left and walk to Marietta Street. Turn left to the Omni Hotel.
You can also get to the hotel be going through CNN Center.
The MARTA ticket roundtrip from the airport to the hotel and back will cost $6.
Those of you who will be driving – don’t. We don’t suggest it as parking in uncovered lots on the streets will cost at minimum $15 a day. Parking at the hotel will be $45 a day.
