About Atlanta Airports
The new billion-dollar airport in Atlanta has inaugurated a permanent public transit system that delivers the same level of service as the city’s great 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.” Georgia Railway Express operates the Connector routes under a contract with the City of Atlanta.
The Connector network is a 100-mile-long route system that connects Atlanta and the surrounding suburbs, plus the state of Georgia. The Connector route system offers daily bus service across Atlanta. Riders can choose from a designated shuttle or ride 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 transport passengers from the airport terminals to five rail stations and 14 bus and rail routes in the surrounding area. 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.
Currently there are two airports in the Atlanta region that offer 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.
Johannesburg is split into a number of ‘clusters’. For an example of the difficulty of getting information in Johannesburg go here.
In an instance such as this it’s understandable that Johannesburg City Government will be far more likely to respond to a request from an airport than it would a request from the City of Johannesburg itself.
Regional City of Johannesburg
To go to the Johannesburg Regional City of Johannesburg (they must be regional though) you have to go to O. R. Tambo International Airport and go to the tourism counter in Terminal 2. Ask them for details and mention your flight number.
International City of Johannesburg
When you fly to Johannesburg International Airport you go through the City of Joburg’s city border. For international passengers travelling to the International City of Johannesburg (I.C.J.) you can travel to I.C.J via the O. R. Tambo International Airport.
We think that if you’re flying for business, you’ll want to fly into Johannesburg’s International City (I.C.J.) anyway to get to the International Business Centre.
To get to I.C.J., fly into Johannesburg’s O. R. Tambo International Airport and check in for your international flight. Then head to the international arrivals terminal (the one on the right hand side) and ask for information on the International City of Johannesburg.
On the airport map of the International City of Johannesburg, it’s easier to just go to the City Centre Airport in O. R. Tambo Airport. There’s a number for the City Centre Airport and you can get details from there.
