The Plane Train connects the North Terminal, handling ticketing, check-in and baggage claim for domestic fights, with the South Terminal that services international carriers. In between are seven concourses, each with dedicated gates for each carrier. A second people mover, the ATL SkyTrain, runs between the passenger terminals and the rental car center.

The trains are computer controlled, stop at every stop and have verbal stop announcements. Terminal maps, found along the people mover routes, also show the location of more than 200 shops, fast-foot outlets, cafes, bars and Internet hot spots. Other items on the terminal map include ATM locations, a full service bank, foreign currency exchange outlets, a business center and the airport's own U.S. Post Office.

Passengers arriving at Atlanta Airport use the map to find baggage claim, passenger pick-up areas and airport transportation. The terminal map makes it easier for connecting passengers to find their next flight, especially international passengers that must clear customs before continuing onward. Maps are posted just outside of the customs and immigration area.
