Catching a Ride: Taking the Bus From Athens to Atlanta and Back

roadskater's picture
If you need to get from Atlanta to Athens or vice versa, Southeastern Stages can get you there. They're bookable directly or by way of Greyhound. If you know of more buses between Athens and Atlanta (such as from the Atlanta airport to the Athens bus station, please feel free to add them here.

For those skating Athens to Atlanta, there are buses available on a2a.net and these are your best bet and a good value as I recall. However, if those don't work for you, perhaps these will.

There are buses from Athens to Atlanta (Southeastern Stages is one company) and it looks like Southeastern Stages as of this writing goes at these times...
  • ATHENS 10:40a-12:15p ATLANTA
  • ATHENS 3:15p-5:00p ATLANTA
The other way at this writing they travel these times...
  • ATLANTA 11:15a-12:50p ATHENS
  • ATLANTA 6:45p-8:45p ATHENS
Here's a sample trip options display from the Greyhound site...

Just for a sample, I chose the first option of both above and got...

I think the one-way fare was $21.00 from Athens to Atlanta on Friday, so the return must be $25, and that might be a difference due to the weekend or bookings.
Hope this helps some people! Skateylove y'all... Roadskater
