    Ticket Diversion Class

    Atlanta Bicycle Coalition’s mission is to transform Atlanta into a more livable, accessible city by making biking equitable, safe, and appealing.

    To help promote understanding and awareness of the proper use of bicycle routes, bicycle lanes, multi-use trails, and learn how vehicles share public space within the City of Atlanta, the City Solicitor’s Office, in collaboration with the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, developed a Diversion Program to provide education on bicycle safety and traffic laws for both drivers and bicyclists.

    The two-hour class will be held virtually until further notice. Successful completion of the two-hour class earns participants a certificate that serves as the documentation needed to absolve the ticket fine.  In order to enroll, please RSVP.  You will receive a Zoom link to access the class.

    Virtual True Beginners Course

    ABC_BikeClasses_bubbles_TB.png
