EXECUTIVE PARK ROUTE AND SCHEDULE CHANGES BEGIN 04/14/2014



Beginning, Monday, April 14, the Executive Park route will no longer service Bldg. #s 57 & 59. Instead, the route will continue on Executive Park Drive to begin new service to Bldg. #12. The route will then continue to N. Druid Hills, turn right, then right again onto Briarcliff to return to the Clifton Corridor and Emory's Woodruff Circle. All other stops will remain the same.

Additionally, we will begin a PILOT PROGRAM of mid-day service beginning at 1:00PM. Once ridership counts and customer service needs are evaluated, a decision will be made whether to continue mid-day service.

Medline Livable Centers Initiative needs your feedback for an Emory-area project. Take survey here...



The Medline Livable Centers Initiative will focus on improving land use and transportation connectivity in the Medlock area. This project will result in a master plan that brings various stakeholders together to form a unified vision for the ultimate enhancement of the area.

As shown on the map, the study area is framed by four major intersecting corridors: Church Street, Scott Boulevard/Lawrenceville Highway, North Decatur Road and DeKalb Industrial Way. General boundaries are defined by Jordan Lane to the north, Medlock Road to the west, Remington Lane to the south and DeKalb Industrial Way to the east. The DeKalb Medical Center, Patel Plaza and Suburban Plaza are all popular destinations located within the study area.

Your participation in this survey will help us identify issues and opportunities for consideration in the final plan.

NEW RECYCLING INITIATIVE IN ALL PARKING DECKS



A new parking deck custodial contract (Kaney & Lane) now includes recycling bins in the decks. The gray bins located throughout the decks have stickers on them signifying what is recyclable and what is trash.


A parking deck trash audit performed last year by Campus Services' Deena Keeler and several student volunteers netted the following results:

Parking deck audit results - a total of 278 lbs. of waste was audited (collected over three days from all parking facilities)

  • 90% of the material collected came from fast food outlets

  • Of the trash, the following items were pulled out as recyclable:
    • 86 lbs. of paper

    • 50 lbs. of plastic

    • 6 lbs. of aluminum

    • 37 lbs. of wood waste/plastic film

    Overall, this produced a 64.4% diversion rate away from the landfill.

Transportation & Parking Services (TPS) is very excited about this collaborative effort between Campus Services’ recycling initiative and their parking customers.

No more back-in or pull-through parking



Emory TPS is in the process of implementing license plate recognition as an enforcement tool for campus parking. All vehicles must be parked head-in so that the license plate is visible from the drive lane.

Additionally, any vehicle that you intend to bring to campus must be registered and linked to your parking permit. Please update your vehicle registration information as directed below.

You could be ticketed for either of these infractions.

  • Login to https://myaccount.parking.emory.edu using your NetID/password;

  • Select "My permit(s)" and follow the prompts to verify or add registered vehicle information;

  • To remove or change vehicle information contact Parking Services at parking@emory.edu.

We appreciate your cooperation as we continue to serve the Emory community.



Out late on campus? Use SafeRide or NightOwl to get home safely



If you are out late on campus, you should always travel in groups of two or more people. If you need to walk alone and want an escort, call for a SafeRide escort.

TPS and the Emory Police Department provide SafeRide service for employees and students. The program provides a safe escort to an employee or student who feels unsafe travelling to areas of campus that are not directly served by shuttle service or for those times when the shuttle service (Nightowl) is not in operation.

The SafeRide may be a walking, golf cart or vehicle escort to your on-campus destination. SafeRide operates from 9:00 pm–5:00 am. To request SafeRide, call 404.727.7555.
