  • All bus or train routes from where you live.
  • A list of other airport employees that live near you (and work a similar schedule) that are open to sharing the ride to work. It’s a great way to cut your gas and parking costs in half! You won’t find this on Google Maps!

If you are planning to drive to work and park, and you are not yet sure where to park, you will want to take a look at the Aero Insider’s Guide to ATL Airport Parking. Our team did all the research so you don’t have to. The cost of parking at the airport ranges from $8.00 a day to over $35.00 a day, so reviewing our parking guide is time well spent.

I need a ride to work

Finding a reliable ride to work is essential for all ATL airport jobs. We know this can be hard.

If you aren’t sure you will always have a car to get to work, or someone to drop you off, these are generally the best options to find a ride to work:

  • Taking Uber or Lyft
  • MARTA train or bus
  • Getting a ride with another person that also works at the airport

We know Uber and Lyft are getting more and more expensive. In fact, average Uber prices rose 92 percent between 2018 and 2021!

Let’s look at the other two options…

The best place to start is to get the free GA Commute App. It will show you:

  • All bus or train routes from where you live.
  • A list of other airport employees that live near you (and work a similar schedule) that are open to sharing the ride to work. You won’t find this on Google Maps!

It’s easy to get started:

  1. Get the GA Commute App:
  2. Create your profile (check out our short video showing how easy this is)
  3. Search for rides (check out our short video to see how this works)

The GA Commute App is brought to you by our friends at Georgia Commute Options (part of Atlanta’s regional government). It is totally free for ATL airport employees to use.
