An on-demand version of Buckhead’s longstanding shuttle service is set to launch on April 19. Riders on the Buc will pay $3 each way - cheaper than standard rideshare rates; trips to and from the district’s MARTA stations at Lenox and Buckhead will be free.

Users must download an app before requesting rides and can expect a bus to arrive within minutes, according to Livable Buckhead. The only catch is the system won’t operate late into the night or on weekends. Regular shuttles will continue to run through lunchtime and during morning and evening commutes.
