It's already shaping up to be a big year for biking, active transportation, and safe streets in Atlanta! To stay focused, here are the 7 top priorities we've established for the year. 

  1. Make the future of biking and safe streets a key issue in Atlanta City elections. We'll meet with candidates to encourage them to adopt elements of our platform, and hold a series of events to increase civic engagement. 

  2. Advocate for bikeways on DeKalb, Monroe/Boulevard, and Ralph David Abernathy/Georgia, as well as other streets through our Connecting the City campaign.

  3. Empower communities to organize for better biking and safer streets, by providing a resource toolkit and trainings

  4. Create Atlanta Streets Alive routes that connect neighborhoods in all parts of city, including a new route

  5. Provide free bicycle safety education through classes, rides, school initiatives, and a ticket diversion program with traffic court

  6. Advocate policies to increase availability of affordable housing on bikeways and prevent displacement

  7. Collect better data using permanent bike counters in partnership with the City of Atlanta.
