Red Line

Dunwoody is an elevated metro station on the Red Line of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail system. It is located at the southwest corner of Perimeter Mall, and also serves the surrounding high-rise office parks in the Perimeter Center business district. From 1996 to 2000, it was the terminus of the old North Line.

Even though the station is located in the city of Dunwoody, it also serves commuters from surrounding north DeKalb and Fulton counties. The Sandy Springs city limit is just 300 meters/1,000 feet west at the county line. It is the only North Line station in DeKalb, as the line (which otherwise runs in Fulton, just west of the due north/south county line) swings east for this station.
