Directions from the Airport

There are four main ways to get to Candler and Emory from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport: Public Transportation, Taxi, Airport Shuttle, and Driving.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION 
Atlanta's mass transit system is MARTA (Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority). Exact change ($2.00) or a refillable Breeze Card is required, which can be purchased from the vending machines at the airport and in all rail stations. Coming from the airport, take any northbound train to the Lindbergh MARTA station. From the Lindbergh station, take the #6-Emory bus to the Emory campus—about a 20-minute ride. Ask the bus driver to let you off at Emory Village (the intersection of North Decatur and Oxford Roads). From this stop, walk through the main Emory gate, then up the hill on Dowman Drive onto the campus. Walk right on the brick walkway between the first building on your right (the Administration Building) and second building on the right (White Hall). Follow the walkway and veer left past White Hall to the stairs between White Hall and Bishops Hall. Take the stairs down. The Theology building is on your right at the bottom of the stairs. The Admissions Office is on the third floor in Suite 301.
