Turn left when leaving the MARTA station and head towards 16th St. on Arts Center Way (north). Turn right on 16th St.. Go one block, cross Peachtree St. and turn left. Residence Inn is on the right. (notice that while you are on the 16th Street block the address is 1365) A SCAD shuttle bus is available directly to and from the school and the station during limited hours. You can ride for free if you indicate you are attending a conference.


You can also use the airport bus shuttle company Atlanta Link. They have a desk at the Ground Transportation Information Center at the top of the escalator when you exit the secure area of the airport.
