How to Get Around Town

Most places in Athens are easily walk able from the Classic Center. However, to reach the far ends of the sprawling UGA campus, taking a bus may be a faster option. The UGA bus system runs continuously during the day  (7am-7pm). The UGA busses are always free, no pass required. Other transport options in town include the Athens City Bus, Lyft, and Uber.
