Biking at Emory

Transportation and Parking Services supports biking for the Emory Community through advocacy and investments in bicycle infrastructure, including bike racks, bike rentals, and PATH multi-use pathways. 

 In partnership with the PATH Foundation, three sections of grade separated, multi-use pathways have been completed since 2018. The first segment completed connects the Clairmont Campus to the South Peachtree Creek Trail.  The second runs from Ridgewood Drive to Clifton Road, following North Decatur Road as it rolls past the Burlington Road Building, the Performing Arts Studio, the North Decatur Building and Emory University School of Law. The third two-lane segment follows Haygood Drive from Druid Hills High School and Andrews Drive to Clifton Road. The fourth is in under construction along Haygood Drive from Ridgewood Drive to North Decatur Road.
