Getting Around at Atlanta Airport Terminals
The underground 'Plane Train' stops at the center of each Concourse.
The Terminal Connector Shuttle at Domestic terminal's ground transport center connects to the International terminal (outside of Arrivals) within 15 mins.
The SkyTrain runs between the Domestic Terminal Complex and the Rental Car Center. It is a ten-minute round trip, with a 2.5 minute waiting time at the stations.
International Arrivals at Concourses E or F have separate immigration & customs checkpoints. While passengers arriving at Concourse F will go through customs clearance (CBP) at this concourse, regardless if connecting to other flights or not - Arrivals at Concourse E who need to connect to another flight will be processed right there, while Atlanta-bound travelers will pass through a sterile corridor with moving walkways leading to the Concourse F's CBP.
Arriving from an international flight & transferring to a domestic flight: After going through International Arrivals customs clearance procedure, follow signs to the 'Plane Train' serving all concourses in the center of their gate arrangements. Also, the Terminal Connector Shuttle located outside the Arrivals level takes you to the Domestic Terminal - a 12-minute ride.
Arriving from a domestic flight & transferring to an international flight: (a) if arriving on a single ticket, you can proceed to your connecting gate. (b) if arriving on two or more tickets issued by non-participating airlines, you need to collect your bags and take them with you on the terminal connector shuttle located at the ground transport center; from there it takes 15 minutes to get to the International Terminal, where you have to check-in your bag again and then go through security and on to your gates.
The Airport's above-ground train station is served by the rapid transit system (MARTA) and located in the Domestic Terminal's ground transportation center - which runs a frequent shuttle bus to/from the International Terminal.
