how far is 3440 Preston Ridge Rd in Alpharetta from Windward Park & Ride where the #185 bus stops?

I ask because i am thinking of taking the bus from N Springs when i fly in from NY and then take the 185 to Windward P&R because my brother works at Evercare at the above Alpharetta address and he may be able to pick me up, but i don't know Alpharetta(well i was once at the N Point mall but I'm not sure if that was Alpharetta or not)

to get from Woodstock to the Sandy Springs MARTA station, would one go down Roswell Rd( rte. 9/19) from Route 92 and make a left at Abernathy Rd? if this is correct, how far is the station from this turn?

thanks so much for helping this NY City man(I know the Roswell/Route 92 area a little bit as you can see)

Whole lot easier for you to take MARTA from airport to the North Springs station and just have your brother pick you up there imho. Especially if you are planning to catchthe bus during during non-commute hours...

seems to me your question would be better answered by looking at a map of the two places, or getting directions on a map site.

Default normally i take MARTA

from Airport to N Springs then the 185 bus to the Chick Fila in Roswell, then bro picks me up after he gets off work

you're right tho because my brother is coming home to Roswell anyway so why should i bother going to Alpharetta(except to check out the sights on the bus)
