Public Transportation

Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) (www.itsmarta.com) provides bus and rail service from campus to downtown and other areas around Atlanta.  Fare is $1.50— includes both bus and rail service.  Monthly passes can be purchased at MARTA ticketing booths or at the Emory Information Desk in the DUC (at a reduce fare).  Schedules and maps of bus routes are available free of charge online or at MARTA information booths.

Transportation to and from the airport can be provided by MARTA and is highly recommended due to the limited amount and high cost of parking in airport lots.  Taxi service from the airport to the Emory area is also available for approximately $30.00.  Hotel limousines can also be used to get to the major hotels in the area.

 If you are planning on using MARTA as your primary mode of transportation in Atlanta, it is a good idea to research the availability of the service both through MARTA and with the apartment complexes you are looking at.  Please note that transportation to Emory is limited to buses only.  Free parking is available at many of the perimeter stations.

Emory runs a free "Cliff" shuttle bus service near many local apartments and shops:  seehttp://transportation.emory.edu/
