    • Transportation
      Suwanee and Gwinnett County are served by several means of public transportation.  Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is approximately 45 minutes (depending on time of day) from our campus at 625 Old Peachtree Road, Suwanee.  The airport is the home base of Delta Alrlines.  Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the busiest airport in the world.  Many regional, national, and international carriers have flights in and out of the airport.  As you would expect, limosine, taxi, and shuttle services are available to and from the airport.  Check www.atlanta-airport.com for more information. Note that MARTA (Atlanta's rapid transit authority) does not serve Suwanee, which is in Gwinnett County and not part of the MARTA service area.  Gwinnett County operates its own transit system, with quaint, easily distinguishable buses.  Bus stops are located to serve popular shopping and entertainment venues and to shuttle passengers throughout the largest population centers in Gwinnett County.  Bus service is provided to and from downtown Atlanta.  The bus stop nearest GA-PCOM is at the corner of North Brown Road and Sugarloaf Parkway.  See www.gctransit.com for more details and current bus routes.
