5 Atlanta life hacks for the airport, MARTA, and more

Use these simple tricks to make your life easier

For the jet-setter
Don’t get stuck in the slow TSA line. Instead, sign up for Trak-a-Line. Just enter your flight time and email for security wait times.

For the dog lover on deadline
Bring your pooch and laptop to ParkGrounds. The Reynoldstown cafe has a dog park for pets to play while you sip on Counter Culture coffee and use the free Wi-Fi.

For the transit rider
Find out when the MARTA bus, train, or Tech shuttle will really arrive with the up-to-the-minute schedule on the OneBusAway app.

For the driver
Save yourself the stress of finding parking before the next Hawks game with the ParkMe app that lets you reserve a spot in pay lots all over the city.

For the food lover
Enlist Elephant Grocers, a local cuisine courier with next-day delivery of organic produce, grass-fed meats, prepared meals, and local favorites within 25 miles of the city.
