Part of the urban area of Avellino, Atripalda is bordered by the municipalities of Aiello del Sabato, Avellino, Cesinali, Manocalzati, San Potito Ultra, Santo Stefano del Sole and Sorbo Serpico.


The final exit "Avellino" of the RA02 motorway from Salerno is located in west of Atripalda, and the A16 exit "Avellino Est", near its eastern suburb. A dual carriageway from Mercogliano and Avellino links both the motorways and crosses Atripalda. The town is also crossed by the state highway SS7 Via Appia.

As for rail transport, Atripalda's southern suburb is widely crossed by the Avellino-Lioni-Rocchetta line without a station. This is mainly because Avellino railway station is situated close to its municipal borders.
