Existing Regional Transit System

The Atlanta region is served by many different transit agencies providing various types of transit services. These services range from fixed route services like heavy rail, bus systems and university shuttles, to on-demand services, paratransit and vanpools. Some of the services are integrated regionally, while others are available only on a local level. Click on the links below to access information about the Atlanta region’s transit providers.
