Detours just aren’t in your vocabulary and you need someone else to take the wheel and listen to that crazy Waze voice.
Whatever the reason, it’s good to consider sharing the ride. Find someone with a similar schedule, who lives nearby and works at ATL by checking out this database of over 50k Atlanta commuters who want to share the ride.
If you use Lyft or Uber in your personal life, it might be something to revisit for your commuter life. Lyft Line and Uberpool- these are the carpool version of the two-popular ride-sharing services.

Uber is offering a 50% discount on uberPOOL rides that begin or end at a MARTA station and a 25% discount on uberPOOL rides in metro Atlanta so you won’t need to worry about finding parking at MARTA parking lots. Learn more here.
