Metro Transit

MARTA train

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.

Starting with August 2019 monthly transit passes, student and employee (non-payroll deduction) MARTA pass purchasing will be moved from the BuzzCard office to Parking and Transportation Services.


ATLtransit is a collaborative effort of metro Atlanta’s four major transit providers - MARTA, Xpress, CobbLinc and Gwinnett County Transit, working with the Atlanta Regional Commission - to provide a single portal of information and resources for customers who want to ride transit in metro Atlanta. Customers can use this site to plan a trip and find options for paying their fare and connecting among systems.
