The rail system lines of a North-South Line (Orange) and a West-East Line (Blue). The bus system is more wide-ranging, covering many Georgia counties, intersecting with several rail lines as well.
Located 10 miles south of downtown, the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the hub for Delta Airlines and has the most passenger and aircraft traffic in the world. There are more than ten additional, smaller airports in the greater Atlanta area.
