University OnDemand

Emory University | Atlanta, GA

With its educational facilities and healthcare system, Emory is the second largest employer in Atlanta, Georgia. Making 3 million trips annually, with 52 vehicles, their transit services are available to over 55,000 healthcare workers, students, and university employees. Emory partnered with TransLoc’s Planning & Design team to review five existing fixed routes and provide recommendations to reduce operational costs without sacrificing campus mobility or rider experience.
