bus travel

Discount express bus corporation Megabus will present service between Athens and Atlanta three(3) times per day starting next Wednesday.

“As Americans continue to look for ways to stretch their income, we look forward to providing safe, convenient and affordable travel to Athens-area residents,” President and Chief Operating Officer Dale Moser said in a news release.

Buses will leave Athens at 7 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., arriving in Atlanta an hour and 40 minutes later. Return trips are scheduled for 11 a.m., 3:45 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

Buses will depart Athens from the Multimodal Transportation Center on East Broad Street Monday through Saturday. On Sundays, when Athens Transit buses don’t run, they’ll depart from the University of Georgia’s East Campus parking deck.

In Atlanta, buses will arrive and depart at the Civic Center MARTA station in Midtown.

The service will boost the local tourism and convention industry, said Kathryn Lookofsky, executive director of the Athens Downtown Development Authority.
