Free ADA shuttles are available on the Green Line route from now until July 17th. The shuttles will drop riders off at the Hub, located at 22nd Street North and Rev. Abraham Woods Jr. Blvd. Once at the Hub, riders should make their way to the white tent on Rev. Abraham Woods Jr. Blvd. and 23rd Street North and ask staff to call for a golf cart to take them to TWG 2022 venues in the area. These areas include:

  • 19th Street North at Rev. Abraham Wood Jr. Blvd – Boutwell Auditorium 
  • 19th Street North at 9th Ave N – The World Games Plaza/CityWalk 
  • 19th Street North at 10th Ave N – Legacy Arena 
  • 22nd Street North near 12th Ave N – Protective Stadium

Need more detailed instructions on accessing the ADA shuttles on the Green Line? Riders should park at The World Games East Parking Lot at 5th Avenue South and 33rd Street South. Once you’ve made it to the lot, ask staff to call for an ADA minibus shuttle. You can call 404-317-8311 for pick up.
