Atlanta - Marta or Car Service
Hi, I have to go to the ATL airport at approximately 8:30 at night. Is it safe to take the Marta there? Keep in mind I am a very experienced public transportation rider or should I arrange for a car service to pick me up and take me to the airport. I will not have a car and so thus will not be driving myself to the airport.

If a car service is best, does anyone have any recommendations?

MARTA could work only if your hotel is near one of the few stops. You could end up walking a long way with no cab in sight.

MARTA is fine. Where would you be catching it?

From the Four Seasons Hotel. I think there's a stop close to there, but am having trouble exactly figuring it out. Too bad hopstop doesn't do Atlanta yet.

Arts Center Station is closest and a straight shot to the airport. It's a couple blocks away.
