Follow the signs to Ground Transportation. Taxi fare from the airport is approximately $35-$40 one-way. The School of Medicine Administration Building is located across from Children's Healthcare at Egleston at 1648 Pierce Drive Atlanta, GA 30322. Allow at least one hour travel time during weekday rush hours (7:00 - 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 - 7:00 p.m.). To return to the airport by taxi, contact Checker Cab at 404.351.1111.



By Shuttle

Reservations Only. Atlanta Airport Superior Shuttle provides shuttle service to and from the Atlanta Airport . The shuttle will drop you off and pick you up from the campus or major hotels. Reservations are required by calling 770.457.4794. At the airport, follow the signs to Ground Transportation. At the exit door you will see the taxis. Across from the taxis you will see the shuttle buses. Look for Atlanta Airport Superior Shuttle in stalls F11 and F12. The cost from the airport to campus is approximately $20 one-way ($35 roundtrip), with lower fares depending on your pick-up/drop-off location.



By MARTA (Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority)

Follow the signs to MARTA near Ground Transportation. Exact change ($1.75) or tokens are required. There are change machines by the MARTA entrance. Take any train northbound to the Lindbergh MARTA station. The train ride from the airport to the Lindbergh station takes approximately 30 minutes. At the Lindbergh station, transfer to the #6-Emory bus or the #245 "Blue Flyer" Kensington/Emory Express. The bus ride from Lindbergh station to Emory takes approximately 20 minutes. Ask the bus driver to let you off on Clifton Rd in front of Rollins or Whitehead. For more information about public transportation, visit the MARTA website



Note to those arriving on Sundays

MARTA is not running #6 buses to Emory from the Lindbergh train station on Sundays. If you still choose to take MARTA to Lindbergh, once at Lindbergh you can call a cab (404.351.1111) if there aren't any there already. The taxi ride to Emory takes approximately 10-15 minutes from the Lindbergh station. Though there are other routes to Emory by MARTA, we do not recommend them as many bus routes only run every 50 minutes – you may have a long wait!
