Not aware of any public transportation. He needs to rent a car.
Here's a list of official shuttle providers from the airport website -
Googling for local providers in Ellijay may help, but my guess is that will be basically hiring a taxi back and forth for the trip. That will be pricey. A car rental will be less expensive.
At a trip distance one-way of about 100 miles, a rental car is your best option. It is an easy route straight up I-75 / 575 / 515.
I am having the same problem this weekend. What did your fiancee figure out? Enterprise is the only option but it is in blue ridge.
There was an option of taking a greyhound bus partway for $30 then a taxi the rest of the way for about $100. But he wound up getting a ride from a relative. I think Enterprise is probably a good plan, if you can return the car to the same location. My fiancee couldn't do that, for various reasons, but if you can it's a good bet.
