If you live in Fayette County and need to get to work in downtown Atlanta or near the Atlanta airport, the Fairburn Park and Ride is your best option to bypass traffic and cut back on commuting costs.

Why? There’s no cost to park, it’s accessible and secure 24/7, and it’s a convenient meetup spot for commuters heading the same direction into Atlanta. With ample parking available, it’s the stress-free alternative you’ve been searching for. Here’s everything you need to know to start using it.

What’s the Fairburn Park and Ride?

The Fairburn Park and Ride is a place where commuters can park their cars and share rides. Located at 8100 Senoia Road, right near the I-85/SR-74 interchange, it’s a convenient meetup point for travelers heading north on SR-74.

Built in 2019 and made possible by the City of Fairburn and the South Fulton Community Improvement District (South Fulton CID), the park and ride was created for local commuters who often get slowed down by area traffic, especially at peak travel hours, or due to nearby construction activity. With the park and ride, Fayette County commuters have an alternative to driving alone.

Why It’s the Best Solution

Of course, the main reason to use the Fairburn Park and Ride is because it makes your commute better. It has lots of features that make it convenient to use, including:

  • 200 parking spots
  • EV charging stations
  • 24/7/365 availability
  • Security monitoring by the City of Fairburn police
  • Great lighting anytime of the day
  • A convenient location right off SR-74 and near the I-85/SR-74 interchange
  • Access to MARTA Route 188, which serves Oakley Industrial Boulevard

Taken together, these features make for a safe, convenient place where commuters working any shift can catch the MARTA Route 188, a carpool, or vanpool.

Why Share Rides

Carpooling and vanpooling are among the most common uses of the Fairburn Park and Ride, and they’re both great avenues to explore for improving your commute. Choosing these travel options helps combine trips and take extra cars off the road, resulting in a cleaner, healthier, and more seamless travel experience in the neighborhood for everyone.

When you share the ride with others, you can split the costs on gas, parking, and long-term wear and tear on a car. You can also swap driving duties with your carpooling partners.

If you’re not sure how to start a carpool or vanpool, Georgia Commute Options has a tool that matches you with others nearby who are heading in the same direction.
