In order to accommodate individuals who wish to participate in transportation programs that address environmental concerns or mandates, and to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles in the Atlanta area, Georgia State University encourages alternative forms of transportation.
Georgia State University provides the sale of discounted monthly student, faculty, and staff MARTA passes.
Georgia State University provides discounted GRTA 31 day passes to students, faculty and staff.
Zipcars live on and around the GSU campus. Students, faculty and staff can join Zipcar for a discounted rate of only $25 per year.
To match University employees in finding other employees with similar searches for optional transportation, 187-RIDE-FIND can be used by Georgia State University employees to find participating fellow coworkers or metro Atlanta workers who live in their immediate areas and who participate in this alternative transportation program for van pools and car pools. For those interested in van pools, car pools, and other transportation alternatives, please call: 187-RIDE-FIND, or proceed here to the Commute Connections Regional Ride Matching Service and Listing.
If you need to work late or have an unexpected emergency, commute using an alternative form of transportation and you may be eligible for a free taxi ride home. Learn more about the guaranteed ride home program at the Guaranteed Ride Home website.
For those who want to receive timely smog alerts and information about the greater Atlanta Air Quality Index (AQI) developed by the Environmental Protection Agency, please visit the Clean Air Campaign website.
