getting to fernbank natural history museum without a car

Hello

We have been using MARTA to get around as staying downtown but looks like using it to get to fernbank is not ideal as have to get a bus from the station which doesn't stop right outside. We have two small children so looking for easiest option. It seems getting a taxi is not the easiest thing to do either - any advice as we are planning to go tomorrow, I don't mind paying for a taxi if it will be less hassle Thank you

The number 2 bus from North Ave station stops about a block away.

You want the stop at Clifton Rd. Check the schedule ;runs about once an hour.

A friend is driving for Uber and is enjoying it. Calling Uber is a good idea, although the bus option works too.

Just wanted to report back for anyone else looking at the same journey, we chickened out of the train then bus option as seemed to run fairly infrequently and we got a cab there instead and happy that we did so considering the rain. Will check out uber for our next trip

Thanks all
