    • Perks: Dozens of shops, dozens of dining options, various services throughout the airport, very close to the center of Atlanta, and a variety of transportation options to/from the airport. The airports design/modifications and staff member training are centered around the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for accessibility (Details here: https://www.ada.gov/2010ADAstandards_index.htm).
    • Challenges: [Minimal] This airport can be confusing to navigate due to its expansive layout. Language barriers may be an issue may be an issue for non-English Language speakers.
    • Access to/from Airport: Approximately 15-minute car ride or 28-minute train ride from the center of Atlanta with easy access to Trains, Taxi, Limousine, Local Shuttles, Car rental, and Buses (Note: Wheelchair accessible van-style Taxi/Car rental with lift is limited and may not be available without request).
    • Maps: https://www.atl.com/maps/ In this link, provided by Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport official website, you’ll find several maps of the Facilities (in English), including very detailed PDF files (click the links above the interactive maps; contains the majority of the Accessibility options listed in the section above; the print is small so you may wish to save it to a tablet/device with a zoom-in functionality if you cannot print them large enough). Even with a map in hand, new places can get you turned around, so if this happens, ask the staff for help to get you on your way.
