MARTA police station at Lindbergh Center

Lindbergh Center station is an at-grade train station in Atlanta, Georgia, serving the Red and Gold lines of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail system. It serves the Lindbergh/Morosgo neighborhood in southern Buckhead, and is a part-time terminus of the Red Line and the last transfer point for the Red (North Springs) and Gold (Doraville) rail lines. It is the only station on this route served by the Red and Gold lines at all times. This is the second busiest station in the MARTA system, handling an average of 23,400 boardings per weekday. It is important to the MARTA system for a number of reasons. It is adjacent to the MARTA headquarters building, located just north of the Armour Yard Rail Services Facility (opened in 2005), which allows trains to come into service at a more central location than was previously possible, and at an important junction point for the future Belt Line.

On the first floor of the headquarters building is the MARTA Reduced Fare Office. It provides access to The Lindbergh Center business, shopping, and dining district, MARTA headquarters, the twin AT&T towers (formerly BellSouth), Xpress bus service to Discover Mills and HighTech Institute. It also provides connecting bus service to Ansley Mall, Atlanta History Center, Emory University, Northlake Mall, Toco Hills Shopping Plaza, Georgia Department of Labor, and the Dekalb-Peachtree Airport.

History[edit]

Originally, the station consisted of a single island platform when opened in 1984. In 2002, during the development of the surrounding area, a side platform was constructed on the northbound side of the station to accommodate the increased ridership and transfers between the Red and Gold rail lines.

Parking[edit]

Lindbergh Center has three parking decks for MARTA patrons. City center has 1,578 parking spaces, Garson has 785 parking spaces, and Sidney Marcus has 544 parking spaces. Due to underuse, some decks may have closed down several levels.
