Getting Here

Connected to a major airport by the free ATL SkyTrain, it is just as convenient by car — at the juncture of two major U.S. interstates. The heart of Atlanta is 10-minutes away by rental car or MARTA transit. And the airport’s Rental Car Center links to the Gateway Arena & GICC by the ATL SkyTrain.


All Surface-Level Parking
The Gateway Arena & GICC parking area is five conjoined surface parking lots accessible at the east and west entrances during high volume events. Our flat rate parking facility is staffed with knowledgeable and courteous parking attendants and includes 30 handicap spaces.

Rental Car Center

Our Next-Door Convenience

Home to all airport rental car companies and activities, the Rental Car Center (RCC) is linked to the Gateway Arena & GICC via the free ATL SkyTrain. Departing from the airport terminal, the ATL SkyTrain travels along a 1.6-mile elevated guideway. First stop: the GICC in just two minutes. Second and final stop: the RCC, only five minutes from the airport. Air travelers enjoy a free and easy connection to their rental cars and the Gateway Arena & GICC, avoiding the inconveniences associated with ground transportation and rental agency shuttle buses.

MARTA Transit System

MARTA: Atlanta’s Rapid Transit System
Gateway Center Arena is easily accessible via the free ATL SkyTrain and MARTA. Take the MARTA to the Airport station and follow the overhead signs and hallway placards toward the Rental Car Center. Proceed out of the west end of the terminal under the covered walkway. Take the escalator up to the station and board the ATL SkyTrain for the free, short 2 minute ride to the Gateway Station.

If you’re visiting Atlanta for business or pleasure, MARTA can connect you to most major destinations in the city, including the GICC. MARTA provides rail and bus service that can get you within walking distance many of Atlanta’s major attractions and destinations.
