Getting Around

Explore everything! No car needed.

Even if you don’t bring a vehicle to campus, you can still get out and enjoy the city. Atlanta is an increasingly pro-pedestrian place, with lots of affordable and eco-friendly options for getting around.

Walk
Enjoy the foot-friendly neighborhood. Town Brookhaven is right next door to campus, an easy 5-10 minute walk. Gather up a gang of friends and head over for restaurants, shopping, movies and more. And don’t forget to take advantage of deals from our Petrel Partners, who offer special sales and discounts for Oglethorpe students!

Zipcar
Here’s convenience for you: two Zipcars parked right on campus, for easy student access. Apply for a Zipcar membership and you can borrow a car any time, whether for an hour or the entire day. There are no extra fees for insurance or gas, so it’s simple and affordable.

MARTA
Hop on a bus or ride the train — MARTA is a hassle-free way to travel across Atlanta. You can easily visit key Atlanta attractions and historical sites like the Atlanta Botanical Garden, the BeltLine, CNN Center, Fox Theatre, the Georgia Aquarium, Piedmont Park, and Oakland Cemetery.

It’s especially convenient for Oglethorpe students, since the bus stops right in front of campus and the train station is just a mile away, an easy walk or bike ride. Plus, our Campus Safety officers will pick you up at the station any time between the hours of 10 pm to 6 am.

Stop in at the bookstore and pick up a discounted, pre-paid MARTA card for extra savings.
