Seven Fortune 500 companies, including The Coca-Cola Company, Delta Airlines, United Parcel Service (UPS), and AT&T Mobility, call ATL home. Atlanta also has a thriving healthcare and biomedical community and is home to 57 colleges and universities

When moving about the city, residents can use one of the best public transit systems in the country, MARTA, with 38 rail stations, plus 100 bus lines and a streetcar.
