Athens Links and Information
Options for Local Transportation
Downtown is adjacent to the North part of UGA ("North Campus"),
if your hotel is in downtown area, then you could easily make it without a car.
Inside the University of Georgia, you could
walk, e.g., from GA-center to Downtown it would take about 30-minutes walk
take a bus, either UGA Buses (free), or
one of the Athens Transit City Buses that pass through campus in their regular routes, or
take a taxi
The City-buses are free to students but this requires to swipe their card upon boarding the bus. Otherwise, the fare is $1.25. Within UGA Campus or downtown, it would be a better option to take a UGA bus to avoid paying fare for a Athens Transit bus.
The UGA buses cover various routes. The routes that drop you on Georgia Center are: East West, Family Housing, Milledge Avenue, North South.
Taxis in town
If you need a Taxi, you can request one (by phone) on this list of taxis. It is advisable to request a taxi in advance (15 to 30 minutes).
At night, there are various taxis on Broad Street, next to 'the arch' waiting for customers. It would be advisable to take a cab late at night instead of walking back alone to your hotel.
