Thinking About Renting a Car for TomorrowWorld? Here's What You Need to Know . . .

Look to the right of your computer screen.

Do you see the countdown clock?

69 days remain until TomorrowWorld; the massive electronic dance music (EDM) festival coming to Bouckaert's Farm in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia this September.

Here at Georgia Unfiltered, we've covered accomodations for people who just want a place to lay their head at night and shower in the morning, without breaking the budget. We've talked about Dreamville camping at TomorrowWorld, and where folks can go to pick up food and supplies for their stay. Now, let's talk about transportation.

A lot of folks have asked the question, "How do I get to and from TomorrowWorld?"

TomorrowWorld organizers have shuttles set up that will take you from the Atlanta airport to Bouckaert's Farm and back when the festival is over. Passes for the airport shuttles are $30, roundtrip. These shuttles take you from the airport to Bouckaert's Farm, Thursday and Friday. Shuttles from Bouckaert's back to the airport run Sunday and Monday.

There are also shuttles from the official TomorrowWorld hotels to the festival site and back. These shuttles run each day of the festival. Anybody going to TomorrowWorld can ride the hotel shuttle, regardless of whether they're staying in an official TomorrowWorld hotel.

Hotel shuttle passes cost $50 for the weekend and $30 per day.

Some people have booked their own hotel rooms outside of the official TomorrowWorld apparatus. Others are coming to the Atlanta area before the official start of TomorrowWorld, and need a way to get around before the various shuttles start running. For those individuals, renting a car may be an option.
