Atlanta, GA Train Information

Peachtree Station (Brookwood Station)-Atlanta's Amtrak

Located in the heart of the city, the historic Peachtree Rail Station dates back to 1918 and was designed by Neel Reid, one of Atlanta's leading architects. Following the 1996 Olympics, Peachtree Station underwent an extreme facelift totaling over $1.5 million dollars which left it grander than ever. Its classic wooden benches, marble floors and vaulted ceilings continue to allure not only travelers but also architectural enthusiasts.

Amtrak's Crescent train runs daily, serving New Orleans, Birmingham, Charlotte, Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City. Both the station and ticketing office are open Monday-Sunday from 7:00 am to 9:30 pm.

A new Amtrak station has been proposed by the City of Atlanta. In November of 2011, the Georgia Department of Transportation signed a $12.2M contract to develop plans for the new station which is intended to serve as a central hub for the city's proposed commuter rail lines, Amtrak, city buses and MARTA.
