Cobb County is trisected by three major interstates: I-75, I-20 and I-285. That means commuters can easily travel to and from downtown Atlanta, as well as to some of the other outlying counties. The Galleria district between interstates 75 and 285 has quickly become one of the area’s busiest business hubs, making it easy for commuters all over the area to get to work. In addition to its road systems, the county also has two other unique transportation options for residents.
Cobb Community Transit (CCT)
As the second largest transit system in the state, CCT’s 73 buses and 21 paratransit vehicles run 4 million trips per year. The system has been operating since 1989, and ferries riders from one corner of the county to another. Additionally, several of the routes run from the Galleria area to the Arts Center Marta station in Midtown Atlanta, for easy access to that system’s downtown stops.
Cobb County Airport – McCollum Field
Owned and operated by the county, McCollum Airport serves as a general aviation reliever airport for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport by hosting both business and personal aircraft on its runways. In addition to various aviation and fueling services, the airfield also makes a substantial contribution to the local economy, providing 842 jobs and an economic output of $112 million per year for the county.
