Georgia Tech encourages students, faculty, and staff to use cleaner commutes by offering discounted monthly transit passes for the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA). Faculty and staff are also eligible for discounted passes via payroll deduction for the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) Xpress bus system, CobbLinc, and Gwinnett County Transit. Instructions for payroll deduction can be found here. MARTA passes for students and employees are also available monthly via the BuzzCard office.
