•The Best and easiest way to
get to the Woodruff Library
when you don’t have a car is
the Cliff Bus.
– This is a shuttle (FREE TO RIDE) provided
by Emory to help their students travel safely
around Decatur, but you don’t have to be a
student to ride.
•There are many cliff busses
that run around different
parts of Decatur.
•The shuttle that gets you
from Agnes to Emory is the
one on the CCTMA route.
Take the Shuttle
•Here is a schedule of the times that the
cliff bus on the CCTMA route runs.
•The shuttle will pick you up from the
bus loading area of the MARTA station
- For those of you who don’t know, that area is
located on the back side of the MARTA station.
To get there, instead of entering the front of
the station, you simply go above the station
onto the square, walk straight past the
Gazebo, and follow the sidewalk until you
come to the circular drive where the busses
• Now the shuttle is run by nice
people, but those nice people have a
schedule to keep so try to be on
time. If you miss the shuttle, you will
have to either catch it at another
stop, or wait for the next one.
• Lucky you, I have been told about a
mobile site that helps you track the
Cliff bus in real time!
• Just type URL into your phone’s web
browser and choose the CCTMA link.
This will show you a map of the
shuttle’s route and where it is at that
Where is your stop?
•Once you’re on the shuttle, relax. If you
have a music player, take the time to listen
to your top three favorite songs (that is
about how long it will take to get to Emory).
•Your stop will be on Clifton Road (the first
road that the bus will turn on after North
- For those of you who are directionally challenged like
myself and have to count the turns, it goes as follows:
*From the Marta Station (located on Swanton Way)
1. Right onto Commerce Dr.
2. Right onto W Ponce De Leon Ave.
3. Left onto Clairemont Ave.
4. Left onto N Decatur Rd.
5. Right onto Clifton Rd.
•As soon as the bus turns onto Clifton Road,
feel free to pull the yellow cord if a stop has
not already been requested. Your bus stop is
the very first one on Clifton.
•When you exit the bus, walk up to the next crosswalk and across the street you will
see a marker for Fishburne Drive. The building directly behind that sign is the
Library. YOU’RE ALMOST THERE! Cross the street and continue down until the next
crosswalk (on your right) and cross that street (the name of the street is Ashbury
Circle). You will now be walking with the Library on your left and you should start
seeing signs that direct you to the main entrance of the Library.
Just in case that last slide confused you, don’t worry. When you cross the street from
the bus stop, take a second to look over this Campus Directory conveniently located
for the lost soul. Find the “You are here” sticker and map your own route to the
library. But remember, you are looking for the main entrance.
If you are still following my directions (walking on Ashbury Circle with the Library on
your left) then you should see the sign from picture 3 pointing towards a circular
courtyard (picture 2). The main entrance (picture 1) is located inside that courtyard to
the left. Congratulations. YOU MADE IT!!

Entrance of the Library.
