Zoo Atlanta has partnered with Lyft to provide free rides to and from two MARTA stations, with some restrictions.

To get the offer, request a ride from King Memorial or Five Points stations — those areas are geofenced — between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.  You’ll automatically receive a promo code, ZOOATL, valid for a direct trip to Zoo Atlanta. 

To use the offer on your return trip, request a ride to the King Memorial or Five Points MARTA stations from Zoo Atlanta. 

Here are the restrictions: Zoo Atlanta will cover up to $10 per trip, and exceptions may apply during prime-time pricing.

Zoo Atlanta is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Zoo Atlanta has released the results of a necropsy of Emerson, their rare tiger. The 10-year-old Sumatran tiger died of cancer of the bile duct, doctors said. The tiger had been showing signs of lethargy and a declining appetite. Emerson's death was a blow to Atlanta's animal community.
