Stingerette van

SERVICE UPDATE (As of 2/8/18): To help address recent safety concerns, PTS will be expanding its nighttime transit service for the Stingerette and Safe Ride Home programs. 

SAFE RIDE HOME: Effective immediately, there will no longer be a charge for the Safe Ride Home program.  Previously, there was a $2 fee per ride  to transport students to Home Park and Centennial. This fee has been eliminated. 

STINGERETTE: Stingerette service will be expanded to add additional drivers to the Monday—Friday shifts. Additional coverage has been added to peak hours to handle anticipated increased demand.  Again, there is no charge for the service.  


Stingerette is a demand-response, transportation service for Georgia Tech students aimed to provide safe and efficient evening transportation. This shared-ride service provides point-to-point transportation to locations within the main campus boundary, as well as to select offsite Georgia Tech facilities and the MARTA Midtown train station.  

The Stingerette is available seven days a week from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. (excluding Institute holidays and during home football games). To request a ride, use the Android and iPhone apps (powered by RideCell)​, visit , or call 404.385.RIDE(7433). 

Stingerette Ride Request System Upgrade is Here!

To use the new system, all customers are required to re-create their Stingerette accounts.

Each service complies with the recommendations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Boarding fees or IDs are not required to use the transit system, except where indicated.
