Other Commute Options

Transportation Management Associations (TMAs), work with private and public sectors to develop efficient and creative solutions to the unique transportation challenges facing the Atlanta metropolitan area. With options such as MARTA Breeze pass discount, carpool and vanpool subsidies and Guaranteed Ride Home, employers can increase productivity, moral and company loyalty, while gaining a tax deduction.
