It appears to me that your best bet is for you to get to the Doraville rail station the best way you can, and then take the train to the North Avenue station. You would be on the North-South line so wouldn't need to change trains. To get back, it's just the opposite - get on at North Avenue and get off in Doraville.

Does that help?

Just drive all the way in or you'll never get to the game. Traffic shouldn't be too bad with you getting to GT around 715 or so. Park at the GT hotel on spring street (top levels are usually not full) and walk over.

Use that map and plan accordingly.

You can't park there unless a hotel guest or permit holder on game days. That's reason #1324098 why it's the best permit to have.

Fowler,

Getting down is easy. When going home though, make sure you're on the correct train (it'll say if it's headed to Doraville or North Springs) or you'll end up with a mistake that takes about an hour to fix.

Really? I always park either at my fraternity or on Techwood so I havent done that in a couple of years. What did it change?

This year.

From a GT Parking email:

The Tech Square Parking Deck (E81) is no longer available as an alternate parking area for football games. Evening/weekend access will be suspended for everyone with exception of E81 permit holders for this lot.

Not sure, but it's been that way for at least this season. They'll turn you away if you don't have a reservation they can check or a hanging E81 pass. It's really nice for me, but obviously sucks for people who don't want to pay $20 to park near campus.
