Interstate 85 cuts directly through the area and intersects with Interstate 285, connecting businesses and residents in the suburbs to the buzz of the city. State Route 23 and State Route 140 also intersect near the center of Norcross, giving plenty of options for reaching destinations in and around Atlanta.
The nearest Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) station is in Doraville, approximately five miles from Norcross. Local buses from Gwinnett County provide more transportation options around town.
