Frequently Asked Questions:

Transportation / Walk at Emory


Why should I register in Emory's Walk program?


Walkers should register in Emory's Walk program to receive special incentives,such as Guaranteed Ride Home, Occasional Parking Permit and Zipcar.

The more participants that are registered in the program, the more influence Emory will have with local agencies in petitioning for wider sidewalks, additional crosswalks and eventually,perhaps, even lockers and showers at your worksite.


How do I apply?


Walkers must complete the bike/walk form. Forms are also available at the Transportation Services Office in the Clairmont campus deck; the Parking and Community Services Office, Lowergate deck; and at Human Resources, 1599 Clifton Road.


What incentives do walkers receive?


The Occasional Parking Permit allows employees to park in a designated parking deck (24 days per year) when it is necessary to drive to work. Learn more about other incentives for walkers here.

RideSmarts regional Guaranteed Ride Home Program (GRH) provides commuters who carpool, vanpool, bike, or use transit with a reliable ride home if an unexpected event occurs during work hours. Commuters may take up to 5 trips home or to their car each year. Registering is simple!
