Best way to get from MARTA Civic Center stop to airport?

I am considering taking Megabus to Atlanta, which stops at MARTA's downtown Civic Center at West Peachtree and Pine Street. I would need to get to the airport from there and would have a large suitcase with me (two week cruise). Would it be best and easiest to stay in the station and catch a train to the airport OR to catch a cab? And are there cabs around that stop waiting for passengers? Thanks.

Definitely take the train. It's a straight shot and just costs just $2.50 versus a $32 cab ride that might leave you stuck in traffic.

Thanks for your reply.....I am assuming when you say it is a "straight shot" you mean I wouldn't need to change trains anywhere between the Civic Center station and the airport? I'm only concerned about that because I will have a bag and a large suitcase.....which I really don't want to be dragging all over Atlanta. Approximately how long would it take to get from the Civic station to the airport?

The commute is very easy. At the Civic Center station,follow the signs to the Southbound platform and get on the first southbound train. The airport is the last stop, approximately 18 minutes. Elevators located at all stations.

No change of trains. As the previous poster said, the train ride is less than 20 minutes; you may have to wait as long as 10 minutes for the train itself.

No rentals cars nearby. Several hotels 3 or 4 blocks south in downtown Atlanta. Cars may be available at the hotels.

There are car rental offices accessible by MARTA downtown, or you can call Enterprise to pick you up at the Civic Center stop to rent a car.

Re: hotels, Google Maps can be your friend.
