And you would be wrong. The only bus service it has, 110, is every 15 minutes at best during the weekday with some intervals of 20 minutes. Weekend service is no better than every 20 minutes, which down from Buckhead admittedly matches the rail frequencies, but is still too big to be useful for anyone but those without any alternative.

otherwise you have to walk cause there's no shuttle.
Then I guess I'll never go there until either changes.

Even if it is every 15 minutes, that seems reasonable. Get a schedule and just time yourself to walk out to the bus stop on time. Coming from up north, from a place with heavy bus and rail, a bus coming every 15 minutes seems within the realm of typical. 10-15 minutes is what I've seen and used up north for work and leisure travel and it works out fine as long as you are willing to be on the bus's schedule and time your affairs to meet that schedule.

That's the trick. It sure beats standing around waiting!

Right. Who takes public transit and doesn't keep the schedule in mind?
