Car Rental, Driving and Parking in Atlanta
Locals driving around Atlanta rarely stick to speed limits and tend to weave in and out of traffic. Therefore driving along the I-285 and other major freeways can be fast. It is sensible to avoid the city center and major freeways (such as the I-20, I-85 and I-7) from 06:00 to 09:30 and 16:00 to 19:30 on weekdays, as these roads are often bumper to bumper. Within the city of Atlanta, many roads change name suddenly, and so it is often worth mapping out your route beforehand.
Various parking garages can be found around downtown Atlanta. These include the Parking Company of America along Luckie Street NW, AAA Parking on Spring Street NW and Lanier Parking along the Martin Luther King Junior Drive SE. Also worth noting, Interpark operate a number of car parks in central Atlanta, along Pryor Street SW.
