Daughter will move to Atlanta in August to begin grad studies at Emory. We're looking for the cheapest option to get her from Portland OR to her apartment near campus with two suitcases, a carry-on and a handbag in tow. She's never been to Atlanta and doesn't know a soul there. She is an experienced traveler and is quite comfortable with public transit but there is a limit to how much one small human can juggle.
Is her best bet to take Marta from the airport part way then catch a cab? If so, where? Will there be cabs queued up by the station? Estimated cab cost from station to campus? How much time should she allow?
Or is there a reliable airport shuttle service that serves the Emory community and surrounding neighborhood that might be worth a few extra bucks?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
