Late-night ride guide 

Transportation options for Atlanta party people

ATLANTA CHECKER CAB Our preferred cab service, Checker's has served Atlanta for more than 60 years. 404-351-1111.

ATLANTA PARTY BUS Who needs a club when there's a disco ball in your bus? The party-on-the-go mobiles can hold up to 36 and have a four-hour minimum. 770-735-2058.

MARTA Atlanta's public transit system could be better. But inside the Perimeter, it can get you to and from class -- and at least to most clubs. The rail and bus service extends to Agnes Scott, the Art Institute of Atlanta, Clark Atlanta, Emory, Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Morehouse, Oglethorpe, Spelman and many other schools. There's even the University Pass Program for students at participating universities -- $40 a month for unlimited rides. Mon.-Fri., 5 a.m.-1:30 a.m.; Sat.-Sun. and holidays, 5 a.m.-12:30 a.m. 404-848-5000.

LIMOUSINES LTD. Feelin' fancy? Got money to burn? Want to impress the ladies? Rent a limo for an hour, all night, whatever, and the only reason you may get pulled over is for lookin' fly. Rates start at $105 per hour. 770-220-1880.

PANTHER EXPRESS Free transportation for Georgia State University students, faculty and staff around the downtown Atlanta campus. The most popular shuttle connects the main campus to Turner Field's parking lot, where the majority of commuter students park. 404-413-9500. Daily, 7 a.m.-3 a.m.

STINGERETTE SHUTTLE Free transportation for Georgia Tech students, faculty and staff into the late hours of the night anywhere on Tech's extended campus. Try to keep yourself in check, though -- the driver will toss troublemakers to the curb. Also keep in mind that, like most bars, last call happens at 2 a.m. Daily, 6 p.m.-2:30 a.m. 404-385-7433.
