College Park is an open-cut rail station on the Red and Gold lines of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail system. It opened on June 18, 1988. An interesting feature of this station is that the platform is narrower at the north end and wider at the south end, presumably to allow room for the yard leads just south of the station. The narrowing of the platform is most apparent at the north end of the platform.

This station mainly serves College Park, Morrow, Riverdale and South Fulton.

This station provides access to Downtown College Park, Federal Aviation Administration offices and Woodward Academy. Bus service is provided at this station to Camp Creek Parkway, Camp Creek Marketplace, Georgia International Convention Center, Old National Highway, Southlake Mall, South Fulton Park & Ride, Southern Regional Medical Center, Fairburn, Palmetto, Sylvan Hills and Union City.
