Dome / GWCC / Philips Arena / CNN Center is an at-grade rail station on the Blue and Green lines of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail system, located on the western edge of Downtown Atlanta. The station was officially opened on December 22, 1979. When the station first opened in 1979, it was called Omni station due to its proximity to the now-demolished Omni Coliseum.

As the station name suggests, the station provides service to the Georgia Dome, the Georgia World Congress Center, Philips Arena, and the CNN Center. Access is also provided to the Omni and Glenn hotels, Centennial Olympic Park, the Georgia Aquarium, Centennial Tower, and the World of Coca-Cola at Pemberton Place.
