Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center station is a rail station in Atlanta, Georgia, 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 officially opened on December 22, 1979. It was originally called Omni station due to its proximity to the predecessor of Philips Arena, the Omni Coliseum (demolished to build Philips Arena).
As the station name suggests, the station provides service to Mercedes-Benz Stadium (originally 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, the College Football Hall of Fame, the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Centennial Tower, and the World of Coca-Cola at Pemberton Place.
