General Meet Information

1246 days ago Transportation to the Pool

In order to facilitate your prompt arrival at the pool using the MARTA trains, we have augmented the Georgia Tech trolley system with additional buses dedicated to swim meet athletes, spectators and volunteers.

These additional buses will run directly from the Midtown MARTA station to the pool and back on an ~ 8 minute interval during the prime hours of 5:30am - 8:30am, Noon - 1:00pm, 3:30pm - 5:30pm, 7:15pm - 9:15pm.

You may also take the Georgia Tech trolley between the Midtown MARTA station and the pool throughout the day. The Georgia Tech Trolleys run on a 12 minute interval throughout the day.

When planning your trip from the Host Hotels, plan on your trip taking 15-30 minutes (walk to Peachtree Center MARTA Station, wait for next train, train ride to Midtown MARTA station, wait for next trolley/bus, and bus ride to pool).
