Regional 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. MARTA passes for students and employees are also available monthly via the BuzzCard office.

ATTENTION:

Due to new campus teleworking initiatives related to COVID-19, requests to terminate payroll deduction for April's transit fare (MARTA, Xpress, CobbLinc, Gwinnett County Transit) will be accepted until 4:00pm Tuesday, March 17th. Please email commute@gatech.edu with requests to end deductions.

Customers may purchase MARTA passes for April 2020 from March 25 through April 10, 2020 in the PTS office via credit card. The payroll deduction option will be available in the new OneUSG system.
