Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center station
Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center station is a rail station in Atlanta, Georgia, on the Blue and Green lines of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail system. Located on the western edge of Downtown Atlanta, the station officially opened on December 22, 1979. It was originally called Omni station due to its proximity to the Omni Coliseum, which was demolished to build Philips Arena (now State Farm Arena). The station's name expanded in 1992 as Omni/Dome/World Congress Center (or simply Omni/Dome/GWCC) with that year's opening of the Georgia Dome as well as the Georgia World Congress Center (opened 1976). It took the present-name in 2000.
