Avoid Commencement traffic by taking Cliff
by kelly gray
On Commencement Day, Monday, May 14, there will be additional Cliff shuttles running to accommodate graduates and the large number of anticipated guests visiting Emory for the ceremonies. In addition to regular campus routes, Cliff shuttles will have access to Asbury Circle to transport Commencement guests. Cliff’s Commencement routes will run from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cliff shuttles will resume regular shuttle routes at 2 p.m.
Commencement guests are strongly encouraged to park at the Clairmont Campus or Fishburne, Lowergate South, Michael Street or Peavine parking decks and use Cliff shuttles to get to the ceremonies. Volunteers will be available at all of the parking decks to direct visitors to the shuttles.
Commencement day will be a normal working day for Emory Healthcare employees. University employees may want to confer with their supervisors about staggering their work schedules or telecommuting on that day to help mitigate traffic congestion. For more information about Commencement shuttles, please contact the parking and transportation office at 404-727-1829 or visit www.epcs.emory.edu/alttransp/shuttles.html.
