  • Taxi fare from the airport to the Wyndham is approximately $28.00 each way ($2.00 for each additional person).
  • Shuttle service is available from Atlanta LiNK for $33.00 round trip. Reservations must be made in advance.
  • The Wyndham is also conveniently accessible by the MARTA metro train. A one way MARTA ticket costs $2.25, and the trip from the airport takes about 20 minutes. Riders can take either northbound train and should exit at the "N4 Midtown" stop. From the Midtown station the hotel is approximately 2 blocks to the east on 10th street.
