Mayoral candidates gather for a lively discussion on biking, walking, and transit

 

Thank you to the partners, attendees, and Mayoral candidates who participated in the Atlanta on the Move Mayoral Forum. More than 300 people attended the event and 2.2 thousand people have viewed the Facebook Live feed. While there was unanimous support among the candidates for 100 new miles of bike lanes by the end of their mayoral term and the creation of an Atlanta Department of Transportation, candidates took different approaches to questions about MARTA expansion, affordable housing and building community support for bike lanes. Many attendees said that they now have a better understanding of where these candidates stand on issues they care about. But our work isn't finished!

Mayoral Questionnaire

The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition and the nonprofit partners involved in organizing the Atlanta on the Move Mayoral Forum created a list of detailed questions. While it was not possible to ask all of these questions at the forum, we are giving candidates an opportunity to provide written responses to these questions. Candidate answers will be shared with you and our partner as soon as they become available.
