ASAP+ Commute Concierge

A Free Concierge Service for a New Commute

Everybody wishes they lived a life full of personal assistants and concierges. Someone to do all your travel-related “heavy lifting” and give you great advice. That’s exactly what the ASAP+ Concierge service is meant to do but specifically for your travel to/from work at Atlantic Station (plus, it’s free and unlike a real concierge—tipping is forbidden).

Just say “hello” via Facebook Messenger and our staff will reply and provide custom info on the best way to get to work along with additional free commuter services and incentives.

Carpool for a Life in the Fast(er) Lanes
There are a ton of reasons to carpool.

  1. It is further to drive to a MARTA station than it is to drive to work.
  2. HOV lanes can get you into some super sweet fast lanes.
  3. You can do your part to get the region moving again.
  4. Free breakfast. Let’s face it—free food makes everything better.
  5. Detours just aren’t in your vocabulary and you need someone else to take the wheel and listen to that crazy Waze voice.

Whatever the reason, it’s good to consider sharing the ride. Find someone with a similar schedule, who lives nearby and works at Atlantic Station by checking out this database of over 50k Atlanta commuters who want to share the ride.
