Buckhead is an at-grade train station on the Red Line of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail system. This station is the first station not served by the Gold Line. It is located in the median of State Route 400, a limited access highway, at Peachtree Road. The station is in easy walking distance of many Buckhead hotels and shopping centers, including Lenox Square, although the Lenox MARTA station provides easier access to the mall. The buc, a zero-fare bus service, also provides transportation to the surrounding area.

As of April 2006, 2,553 daily fares were collected at the gates.
