If you are traveling to Atlanta for GSPC via plane, then the easiest way to reach Tech is the MARTA (~$2.50), though a Taxi is a reasonable option as well (~$35). The subway (MARTA) runs from the airport to within a few blocks of campus. At the airport, follow the signs to MARTA, which is the Atlanta Subway. You'll see the signs after arriving at the baggage claim area.

The airport is the end of the south line. There are a couple of MARTA stops that are close to campus; the North Avenue station is within walking distance and the Midtown station operates a trolley to campus. Maps below show detailed directions to the venue. To reach campus from the North Avenue station, ride the train north, to the North Ave MARTA stop.
