Emory's carpooling program is designed to reduce traffic congestion and parking demand at the main campus on Clifton Road. Emory works with Georgia Commute Options and the Clean Air Campaign to offer carpool incentives, provide ongoing support and information, and assist employees and students in obtaining ride match lists.

Visit the Carpool page for more information about programs and incentives.

Enterprise CarShare at Emory

We are very excited to annouce a new partnership with Enterprise CarShare. This new partnership will replace ZipCar and will provide Emory students, employees, and departments with a convenient and flexible method of transportation.

We're pleased to offer this service in support of our Commute Alternative Program (CAP) members who might need a vehicle during the workday for errands, appointments or off-campus meetings. Find out more at

Emory's Cliff Shuttle System

Emory's Cliff shuttle system serves the University's main campus, Oxford College, Emory University Hospital and Clinics, and the Clifton Corridor.

The fleet is 100% alternatively-fueled, fully accessible, and equipped with bicycle racks.

Visit the shuttle page for routes and schedule information.


Vanpools provide an inexpensive commute option for small groups of seven to fifteen commuters who live and work in the same area, have similar work hours, and want to share their commute in a leased van.

Visit the Vanpool page for more information.

Public Transit

Emory supports public transportation in the Metro Atlanta area and encourages faculty, staff and students to take advantage of public transit to access Emory's campuses.

Visit the Public Transit page for more information.

Bike / Walk

Emory supports a bicycling culture for those who cycle to work, and those who bicycle around campus. Consider cycling to work or class as a healthier alternative to driving. Bike Emory provides access to a broad social network and helpful cycling tips.

Visit the Bike page for more information.
