  • • Bus route #18 runs between South Decatur and the Georgia State Station
  • • Bus route #13, Fair Street/Techwood, departs from the North Avenue Station near the University Village

Students may purchase unlimited monthly rides for $26 through university-discounted MARTA TransCards. Faculty and staff pay $38. MARTA’s current per-ride rate is $1.75. (See Figure 3.6 on page 3.14)
