The chart below illustrates the results of a survey we recently offered to current students about their communting choices. Most students drive to school while others take greener options such as the Emory Cliff shuttle and Atlanta’s public transportation system, MARTA.
MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) is the primary public transportation system in Atlanta.
- Serves about 500,000 riders per day
- Bus Route 6 serves the immediate Emory area and surrounding neighborhoods
- Lindbergh Train Station is the closet rail stop to Emory. You would then transfer at that station to Bus 6 to get directly to the campus
- MARTA is an effective mode of transportation if you live in or around the Emory area. It is also good to use if you will be going to the airport, attending sporting games, festivals, concerts, etc. in the downtown/midtown area. Parking at these events and traffic tend to be a challenge.
- The University's structured sytem of transportation options
- Includes vanpools, carpools, ride shares and more
- Discounts and incentives are available; organizations work in tandem with Emory to improve transportation to and from campus
