    If we hangout near the Marta -Civic Center there are restaurants within a 15 min or less walking distance.

    If we go to the Lennox Mall, we will need to ride a bus (for 18 min) and it will cost around $5 per a person round trip to get there. We can decide on tomorrow.

    Traveling on the bus

    What do I give the driver when boarding the bus?

    Passengers are required to present a valid reservation number, provided at the time of purchase, when boarding megabus.com services. While not required, we do suggest you bring a printed copy of your reservation confirmation email, as this will include your reservation number(s). No physical tickets are issued for travel.

    Your WorldPay Transaction ID # or your order # will not be accepted as proof of a reservation. Make sure that you obtain a reservation number for each trip you reserve.

    Reservations are only valid on the trip(s) date, time, origin and destination as stated on the reservation.
    No refund will be made in relation to any reservation confirmation refused due to fraudulent use.

    May 16

    • Chris

      I resent the bus ticket that I emailed to you on April 3rd. The ticket will have your Reservation summary and Reservation Number. I will also print it in the event you are not able to do so.

  • Tyemerica

    Hey everyone, I checked out eventbrite and there's a day party in Atlanta @ Boogalou Restaurant (from 4-8) which is about 6 mins from the Underground. Is that the mall we're headed to? Just throwing out a suggestion :-)

    May 16

  • Carla

    I'm ok with the mall. I have been to atlanta before, but not the mall.

    May 16

  • Nicole D.

    Well...my son's baseball game was rained out Thursday, so of course it has been rescheduled for tomorrow...can I catch a break. Any how, hoping that I am still able to go...feeling disappointed

    May 16

  • Chris

    Good morning. I am excited about tomorrow's bus ride. I am hearing great things about the bus from a coworker. There should be TVs and wi-fi. Please feel free to bring whom ever you like. Is everyone ok with spending our time there at the mall?

    May 16

    • Chris

      No. It really depends on what everyone wants to do. It would probably work if we eat when we arrive and shop on our own...and meet back at a spot at a certain time to return back to the bus station.

      May 16

    • Tyemerica

      Sounds like a plan :-)

      May 16

    I sent you a message, Morton Steakhouse is near the Marta, and they are running a Special 3 course dinner for $59.00. Reservations required

    March 25, 2014

    • Monica B.

      I did a google map search of the drop off location and there are several options from sit down restaurant to burgers and fries. They are all within the area of the Civic Center.

      March 25, 2014

    • Monica B.

      They range from fast food to upscale. It just depends on your taste. I saw a Hard Rock Cafe. Some are within walking distance and some are serviced by the Metro Line.

      1 · March 26, 2014

  • Chris

    1 · March 25, 2014

    • Chris

      I will email everyone tonight to confirm who's going. I will probably setup a paid RSVP and purchase tickets as a group. I know that at least two people definitely want to go.

      March 25, 2014

    • Monica B.
