Commuter Students


AUC campus shuttle services, Atlanta's excellent mass transit, and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport ensure that you can easily get where you need to go whether it is to a class across campus, to an internship in downtown Atlanta, or back home to visit family and friends.

Getting around Campus

The AUC Shuttle services the Woodruff Library, all of the Atlanta University Center institutions, three MARTA hub stations surrounding the AUC, and several student residential areas.

Getting around Atlanta

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) provides convenient, safe, and economical rail and bus service to many locations within the metropolitan area. The Spelman campus is located just a short walk from a major MARTA rail hub, which also provides bus connections to surrounding neighborhoods.

Get-acquainted Ride Party

Each year, as a part of first-year student orientation, the Spelman Public Safety Department and MARTA sponsor a Get-acquainted Ride Party. It begins with a safety orientation to the system and a free ride to one of the city's most popular malls.

Discounted Monthly Ride Cards

Spelman supports the use of mass transit by making available discounted monthly ride cards to students and staff (available through Student Accounts).

MARTA Bus and Train Schedules

MARTA bus and train schedules are available in the Public Safety Office.

Catching a Flight

Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is the second busiest air transportation hub in the world. This world-class facility is serviced by all major domestic airlines and is a true international hub with direct service to destinations worldwide.

You have several options for traveling between Spelman and the airport. Airport Shuttle and taxi services both come to our campus, and a MARTA train travels directly from a hub near campus to a convenient hub in the airport.
