There are several options:
Train/Subway/Bus- MARTA - (least expensive, $2.50 one-way) means Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, which offers rail service from inside the airport terminal near domestic baggage claim to campus and much of Atlanta. The ride takes 25-30 minutes. Georgia State is served by 3 MARTA stations: Georgia State, Five Points and Peachtree Center. MARTA includes dozens of connecting bus lines. You can purchase discount MARTA cards (Breeze Cards) on campus. Below is a short video welcoming to the MARTA Airport Station.
Taxis (most expensive, $30-40 one-way) door-to-door service. A 10% tip is expected. Taxis also accept credit cards.
Caution: Never accept an offer of a "taxi ride" from anyone inside or near the baggage area. These drivers are breaking the law, are not insured, and are possibly dangerous. Only use official taxi drivers at the taxi stand outside the airport.
Uber and Lyft are ridesharing companies offering services that include peer-to-peer ridesharing. They generally cost the same as a taxi (around $20-30 one-way), but riders can use a phone application to schedule their pickup and see the cost of the trip in the app. You can also choose between options to save on the cost of the trip.
Georgia Culture Connection offers a free service to new international students arriving at the Atlanta airport. GCC's airport pickup service has reached capacity for the Fall 2022 semester. If you have questions, please contact email@example.com.
