Bus 32 goes to the zoo from the Five Points MARTA station. The ride from Five Points to the zoo is about 10 minutes (see area and bus stop map). The zoo is not very visible from the street, but sits in the southern end of the park. The connection at the Five Points MARTA station isn’t in the nicest of areas, so you may want to use one of the other options instead.
