Getting Around in Decatur, GA

The city of Decatur’s transit system is influenced by the city of Atlanta. Because of Atlanta’s proximity, residents need to be able to get to the city, where many have jobs. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, or MARTA to the locals, handles much of the city’s public bus transportation. In Decatur, downtown is situated very close to residential areas. That means a significant amount of residents walk downtown for work and play, and the city has added bike paths to account for this as well.
