  1. Wouldn’t the headline benefit from a little rearranging? I read it that she was somehow incarcerated, and this was like a Free Nelson Mandela type campaign.

  2. Bigger issue..if we have to go onto campus to get tickets, where the heck do we park?
    Or do we just ride our bikes over there?

      1. Can non-Emory people just take the shuttle from downtown Decatur? You don’t have to have an Emory connection to ride that?

        1. Yup. The shuttles are not just for Emory, they are part of the Clifton Corridor Transport group that’s trying to de-congest the whole area for everyone’s benefit.

          They even have a real-time “where’s the shuttle” map, see http://emory.transloc.com/
          (there’s an app for that, too)

          1. So can I, as a State of Georgia employee located in the Clifton corridor (I am looking at a Cliff bus right now outside my office window) use the Cliff bus? Even if the state does not contribute to the TMA? Not that I want to give up MARTA!

  3. If you click on Emory’s website and click thru to the venue website, there is a map of public parking decks nearby.
