Emory University is a private university five miles from downtown Atlanta. The closest MARTA station is the Candler Park station on the blue/green rail line, but the school is not in walking distance. Choose from the following commute options:
You can bike to campus in 15 minutes from the Candler Park station (see bike map). A reminder that if your starting station is on the red or gold line, you must transfer to an eastbound train at the Five Point station.
No bike? Request an Uber car from the Candler Park MARTA station. Use promo code MARTAGuide to get $20 off your first ride.
Two buses travel to Emory:
- Bus 6, which departs from the Inman Park and Lindbergh Center MARTA station, goes completely through the campus on Clifton and North Decatur Road and has a stop at the Emory Village as well.
- Bus 36 from the Midtown or Avondale station travels on North Decatur Road only. Great for students who live in Midtown, Virginia Highland or in Decatur along N. Decatur Road. It also stops outside the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts.
The last option is to ride the free Cliff Shuttle that connects to the Decatur MARTA station on the blue rail line. Take the Swanton Way exit out of the station toward the buses and look for the shuttle sign in the bus bay.
