ATL is also directly accessible via the MARTA's Red/Gold rail line.
   NOTE: As of April 2015:  The major roadway improvement project has now been completed with the opening of intersection Riverdale Rd./ Airport Blvd. - resulting in greater safety & reducing traffic congestion. The south end of Terminal Pkwy has now been permanently closed, while a new span of roadway now connects Terminal Pkwy to the southern end of Airport Blvd, with a new permanent access point from Riverdale Rd at the existing signal-controlled intersection (the location of the monument sign). Drivers on Riverdale Rd. coming from I-85 will get plenty of notice before approaching Airport entrance.
Entrances to the Airport from I-85 south at Exit 72, I-85 north at Exit 71, Loop Rd and Camp Creek Pkwy will remain the same.

With five runways and estimated 96 million passengers annually, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport is primary hub for Delta Air Lines, and is served by countless U.S. & foreign airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.
