Driving South on I-75/I-85, exit at NORTH AVENUE. Turn left onto North Avenue and travel east to West Peachtree Street. Turn left onto West Peachtree.

On West Peachtree Street it is best to be in the far right-hand lane by the time you cross 3rd Street. The AT&T complex will be on your right. The driveway to access the free parking is prior to our building, under the Prevent Blindness Georgia sign. If you miss the driveway, continue to 5th Street, one block north, and turn right.

By MARTA Train

(Note: There are several ways to exit the station. The following is the easiest route.) At the North Avenue Station, walk to the north end of the station (the front of a northbound train, the back of a southbound train). Go up the stairs marked "AT&T Center/Fox Theater." Go through the faregates and out the sliding doors into the AT&T Building. Turn left. Exit through the revolving doors toward West Peachtree Street. Turn right on West Peachtree toward 3rd Street. Cross 3rd Street. The building on the right is the AT&T building. Pass a wide, open space, which is a double driveway. Prevent Blindness Georgia is located in the next building.
