The GSU community will have a
more convenient way of purchasing a GSU discounted MARTA Breeze pass every
month beginning Monday, August 20th, 2012.
Students, faculty, and staff who wish to purchase a GSU discounted
monthly MARTA pass for the month of October will need to visit the customer
service counters at Auxiliary and Support Services between August 20th and September 15th. A valid
PantherCard is necessary in order to purchase specially marked Georgia State
University discounted plastic Breeze Cards.
Once a new MARTA Breeze Card is
obtained, for future monthly passes, students, faculty and staff (except those
on payroll deduction) will need to log on to Parking Web between the 1st and
15th of each month to purchase the following month’s card in order
to receive the maximum discount available for their card.
Faculty and Staff that would like to participate in the MARTA Breeze Card pay-roll deduction program
, should fill out a MARTA Authorization form
and bring it to HR. Existing Payroll deduction participants only need to get a new Breeze Card.
ENJOY THE BENEFITS
Easy to Reload
The new Breeze Card is
reloadable online. This means that
students, faculty and staff no longer have to visit Auxiliary and Support
Services in person to pick-up the next month’s pass.
If reloaded online between
the 1st and 15th of each month, students pay $61 and
staff pay $77 instead of the full retail price of $95 if purchased directly
Breeze Cards are made of
durable plastic, and can either be reloaded online or through any MARTA kiosk
although kiosk prices are higher because they do not receive the University
Limited Protection Plan
There is also a limited protection plan on all Breeze Cards
purchased. As long as the card is
reported lost, stolen, damaged, or non-functional before the 22nd of
each month at Auxiliary and Support Services, the card will be replaced and
will still have that month’s benefits.
There is a small administration fee for replacement.
