Taking Marta
To take MARTA to the Ferst Center, go to the Midtown station. Exit the station on the side opposite from 10th Street. Look for the Tech Trolley – a yellow and black bus designed like an old-time trolley – and that will take you to the Georgia Tech campus. There is no charge to ride the Tech Trolley. The Trolley schedule changes by day and time of year and has limited evening hours so please check the schedule. Exit the Tech Trolley at the Ferst Center stop. Cross the street and continue towards the Ferst Center, past the Student Center on your right, for about 100 yards. To return, reverse the directions (the Trolley stop to return to MARTA is on the Ferst Center side of the street). Again, please check the Trolley schedule carefully to make sure it is running when you need it.  You may also take MARTA to the North Ave station and Lyft or Uber to the Ferst Center.
