About Atlanta Airports
Atlanta’s new billion dollar airport has opened a new permanent public transit system that provides the same service as the city’s excellent transit system. Duluth, Athens, Cartersville, Alpharetta, Carroll County, Chattahoochee Hills, Centennial, Doraville, Eulonia, Farmville, Grimesville, Roswell, Riverdale, Sandy Springs, Warner Robins, and West Virginia are all served by the new Connector bus system, which is billed as “the nation’s first airport transit service.” The Connector routes are operated by Georgia Railway Express under an agreement with the City of Atlanta.
The Connector network is a 100-mile route system that connects Atlanta and its suburbs, as well as the state of Georgia. The Connector route system offers daily bus service across Atlanta. Riders have the option of taking a designated shuttle or taking the bus. The Connector routes are featured in the government-sponsored website: www.atlantatransportway.com. When purchasing a MARTA trip on MARTA, a user gets free access to the Connector buses.
The Connector buses are segregated from traffic by wireless signal technology-enabled smart bus lanes. The buses use cameras to monitor the traffic flow behind them. If the bus stops at a red light or a stop sign, the bus driver has the authority to override the traffic lights and stop the buses, and proceed. This feature works well during rush hour traffic in Atlanta.
The Connector buses take passengers from terminals at the Airport to five rail stations and 14 area bus and rail routes. The airport’s Connector bus stops are located in three major terminals. These are Terminal North, Terminal South, and Concourse E. The Connector buses also connect to the MARTA rail line at all five of the rail stations. MARTA’s Blue Line takes passengers to the Airport; at Concourse E the Connector buses connect to the Green Line that goes to Dunwoody. MARTA offers a convenient commute and connections to a large variety of transportation systems.
The first 20 journeys on the Connector are free, and customers who purchase tickets in advance can take advantage of senior and high-fare discounts.
Atlanta’s airports have opened their own transit systems for the first time in the U.note: Local airport transportation was created in 1976 in Atlanta and 1974 in Nashville.
In the Atlanta area, there are now two airports that provide transit. The Connector bus system provides free transportation to and from the city’s airport. The Connector bus service connects travelers to MARTA rail, bus routes, and road transportation. The Connector is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Atlanta Connector bus system is a six-mile line that connects Atlanta to the surrounding cities.
Downtown Atlanta has recently opened a new multimillion dollar transit station. The entire transportation system around the Atlanta airport is operated by the city of Atlanta. The Atlanta airport also has a free downtown shuttle called “Way.Ez”.
The Connector bus system is a terrific way to move around whether you’re an airport guest, a local visitor, an airport employee, or an airport employee who uses the airport transit service. The bus system operates all day and all night. The Connector buses are also free for the first 20 trips.
The Connector buses provide rides to the city, to suburbs, to the state, to other states, and to outlying cities in the states of Georgia, Tennessee, and West Virginia. The Connector bus connects to all of the airport terminals. It stops at many of the rail stations and also provides rides to the MARTA rail line at several of the rail stations. The Connector buses stop at all of the airport terminals, except Concourse E. The Connector bus system is a well-organized and professional transit service that operates smoothly and competently.

Atlanta’s History of Aviation
Atlanta’s airport is located near downtown Atlanta. Many of the city’s top attractions are less than a 10-minute drive from the airport, and all of the airport terminals are near downtown. For example, you can get to the state capitol, the Georgia State University campus, the city’s top museums, the Atlanta History Center, and many other attractions in just 15 minutes or less.
The new Lindbergh Museum in Atlanta was built by the grandson of Charles Lindbergh. The museum was built to honor the famous aviation pioneer and provide a glimpse into the history of aviation in Atlanta.
The Lindbergh Museum is located next to the College of Education on Georgia State University’s campus. The museum is an official affiliate of the National Air and Space Museum and the Smithsonian Institution.
The Lindbergh Museum is very different from many of the typical museums in the United States. Some museums focus on the history of certain industries, while others focus on the history of particular groups or events. The Lindbergh Museum focuses on the history of aviation and the history of flight in Atlanta and the United States. It focuses on the concept of flight. The museum has five different galleries that illustrate the concept of flight, while the other galleries feature other aspects of the history of flight in the United States.
Cape Town Airport, South Africa
I hunt for a lovely site to photograph near the Cape Town Airport every time I fly from the United States to South Africa. This time was no different. After takeoff, I found an open spot and started snapping away. Unfortunately, at the time I noticed this city and skyway building, my battery was already running down because of the long trip. I was hoping I would be able to come back after the end of my Cape Town trip to see if my camera battery died and to find this spot again.
As you can see from the photographs in this page, Cape Town isn’t the only city with stunning skyways. On my skyway posts, you’ll find a variety of other great city skylines. I hope this one gets you looking for more skyways to capture with your camera and view.
At least two different flights take off from this Cape Town Airport every day. This shows how busy and huge Cape Town is. Right away, you can see that this area is the center of the city. On the right of the photo, you can see City Hall, the capitol building for South Africa.
Since we weren’t flying out of this airport, I began wandering about the city for other spectacular sites to photograph. In Cape Town, I discovered a street where many people take to the air to photograph the city below. The street is called Regent Road and is in the neighborhood called Old Town. I believe this is one of the neighborhoods in Cape Town that is still being built up and developed. Although, this picture was taken in September 2021. Even though the colors of this area are faded in this photo, I still think the design is fantastic. There are two rows of stores on the street to the right of the photo. There is even a big flight of steps to get down to the sidewalk. The clouds were not very high in the sky at the time and I was hoping for a higher flight of stairs so the clouds could be above me. After taking some of my own pictures in the area, I turned around to look to see if I could find this cool street again. When I did, I got a view that I would have liked to take another picture to give the perspective to show you more of the city. There were no clouds left in the sky in this picture. You can see some of the top of Cape Town in the distance.
Cape Town City Hall and the Weather
Last but not least, I’d like to show you the view from this lovely city hall. The skyway is undoubtedly one of Cape Town’s most magnificent bridges. When I took this photo, the sun was already setting on the horizon and the sun was just starting to go down in the sky. The weather was extremely beautiful at that moment. I hope you get to see this view as well.
How I Found Cape Town’s Skyways
I mentioned before that I drove a different road to take my picture in Cape Town. This road runs through Mitchell’s Pass, a small town in South Africa. Mitchell’s Pass is a very scenic road and a very nice drive through this part of South Africa. When you drive through this part of Cape Town, you can take a beautiful view of Table Mountain. However, the scenery around Cape Town was amazing. I would describe the drive to Cape Town through Mitchell’s Pass as a road that looks like it has the skyways built on top of it. I actually thought that the skyways actually are built on top of this road because of the cables.
After driving through Mitchell’s Pass, I ended up finding a flight of stairs that looks like it has skyways built on top of it. It is actually not very far from the city, so I went down to the steps. I got out of my car and started taking some pictures. I took a picture of the skyways, the stairs, and a flying bird. When I was looking through the camera to get the photos, I realized that the bird was taking a flight over the city. It was a nice way to finish up this post.
If you are a photographer and you want to see Cape Town’s skyways in all of their glory, then check out my skyways blog posts. You will find the one I just shared with you here. There are also skyways in other amazing cities such as Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York City, London, Washington, D.C., Chicago, and Toronto. I hope you will love looking at all of the amazing views from skyways too. I know I do!
