Hartsfield-Jackson's Rental Car Center (RCC)

ATL SkyTrain

The ATL SkyTrain is an elevated train that connects the passenger terminal to the rental car center. The ATL SkyTrain takes customers on a scenic, five-minute ride to the rental car center, where they sign rental agency contracts and pick up cars.

The ATL SkyTrain also connects the Airport and the rental car center to the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC). Meeting and event attendees at the GICC will have unprecedented access to the world’s busiest airport, the state’s second-largest convention center and the state-of-the-art rental car center. The Airport has 12 ATL SkyTrain cars. They operate in pairs to shuttle customers from the terminal to the GICC/Gateway Center station and then to the rental car center. The wait time between trains during the day is about three minutes. During off-peak hours and overnight, the wait time should be no longer than 10 minutes.

The rental car center ─ a 67.5-acre site across I-85 from the Airport ─ houses all Airport rental car companies and their associated operations, including customer service, administrative offices, car pickup and return, fueling and maintenance facilities.
