How and where to park: There are about 14,000 parking spots at SunTrust (compared to Turner Field's nearly 8,700), with some lots designated for season ticket holders and others for public parking. The Braves recommend buying a parking pass online ahead of time. Some of the public parking lots allow you to pay on-site with a credit card (not cash), while others are prepaid parking only.

Read the AJC's guide to stress-free Braves parking, including a list of all the lots and a location map.

Getting there on MARTA: There are two ways to get there, both by bus: Take the Route 12 bus (headed for Cumberland Mall) from MARTA's Midtown Station seven days a week, or the CobbLinc Bus Route 10 (headed for Marietta) from MARTA's Arts Center station seven days a week. Take both to the Cumberland Transfer Center, exit the bus and catch the Cumberland District Circulator to SunTrust Park.

Using Uber: The Braves say a partnership with Uber will help make the pick-up and drop off experience more efficient at the stadium. That includes a reserved Uber lot. Other ride sharing services, including Lyft, will not have access to the lot.
