Is accessing Atlanta using MARTA relatively hard or relatively easy, specifically is it easy to travel from Emory University to Five Points?

From what I understand, one must take a bus and then hop on a train to get to Five Points from Emory. This seems rather easy, however, if the system is poorly run then it could be a mess. I am interested in knowing because I am an Atlanta Braves fan, and I plan on going to some Braves game. On this note, I am unusually intrigued by one dollar skyline tickets for Braves games. As long as one arrives early, these tickets are apparently fairly easy to buy. Man, I can't wait to get to Atlanta, hit up Turner Field for one buck, and then mack on an overpriced hot dog.

    It's relatively easy to get there from Emory, and may be more so in the future as the Emory shuttle service is expanding. Also, your freshman RHA staff will probably take you to a Braves game at some point. :-) I heard it was a lot of fun, but I didn't go because I'm a baseball snob (it happens when you live 15 minutes away from Victory Field).

    Little five points is literally only about 5 minutes away by car. Granted, freshman can't have cars but it's not terribly hard to find someone willing to take you/go with you.

    MARTA is pretty reliable and not that bad considering it is public transportation. i wouldn't worry too much about getting around; you should be fine.

    I too want to go to a Braves game once I get to Emory, but I am definitely not a Braves fan. I'm from Houston and I'm an Astros fan. Hopefully I can go see one where the Stros play the Braves.

    we take cabs everywhere. they are all around campus, especially at night. especially as a freshman without a car, when you want to get off campus, that's the easiest way. it's expensive though. thats one benefit of greek life too: upper classmen who have cars/will sober drive.
