Transportation

In the spirit of reducing our footprint, march participants are strongly encouraged to take MARTA, bike, or carpool to the event. Click here for the 2016 carpool resource page, and find MARTA, bike and driving directions below. If you do drive yourself, parking is available for free and you can park in Student Parking Lot 3.

If any mobility impaired folks would like to join the event, we will have several electric cars leading the march that you’re welcome to ride in. Just email climatemarchatl@gmail.com to let us know that you’ll be in attendance.
