Taxi to and from Arron's Ampitheatre at Lakewood

My friends and will be going to the Phish concert this Saturday, August 25. We all enjoy alcoholic beverages, and will not be driving to the show. We'll be staying downtown. So it shouldn't be any trouble getting a cab to the venue, but I'm concerned that we may not be able to get a cab to come down there to pick us up. Does anyone have any experience getting a cab in that part of town? Are there cabs waiting outside of concerts, typically? What kind of cab fare are we looking at?

I don't recall seeing a lot of taxis there, but I've never really looked. One solution if you don't find a taxi is to hop on the MARTA shuttle buses, which are plentiful. They drop off at the Lakewood MARTA station, and you can just take MARTA back to downtown. Or, take with you the phone number of a cab company to call them to pick you up, but it seems to me that it would be hard to coordinate meeting your cab in such a crowd. I'd just take MARTA.

You can calculate the cab fare using the link under Top Questions on the right. I'm guessing about $20.

agree with Jatlanta--ive been to several events at Lakewood and the traffic after the event is very crowded after the show and the police direct traffic away from the event--i doubt a cab could even get thru--perhaps a limo company could set up a meet place a few blocks away--MARTA is pretty simple to do
