Atlanta is on the move. The City of Atlanta has developed a draft transportation plan to create a world-class sustainable transportation system that addresses congestion in our growing and evolving city. We need your input to finalize the plan and shape Atlanta‚Äôs future. Detailed technical memorandums and an interactive map are available on the Facts & Data page.
What is Atlanta’s Transportation Plan?
The City of Atlanta is updating the Connect Atlanta Plan, its first comprehensive transportation plan adopted in 2008. The result will be Atlanta’s Transportation Plan, which will support the long-term vision of the Atlanta City Design effort and provide policy and project recommendations to build a world class, sustainable transportation system that addresses congestion in our growing and evolving city. Atlanta’s Transportation Plan will leverage local funding sources through the MARTA and T-SPLOST sales taxes and the Renew Atlanta infrastructure bond program. The plan also ties into regional and federal funding opportunities through the Atlanta Regional Commission. The draft transportation plan document and technical memorandums are available on the Facts & Data page.
Why is Atlanta’s Transportation Plan Important?
Atlanta is growing! Citywide population has been growing since 2010 and developers and companies are investing in Atlanta. With that growth comes new places to live, work, and play, and the need to create a comprehensive transportation system that works for everyone. Our goal is to plan future improvements and programs that will create a world-class, sustainable transportation system that is safe, efficient, and equitable for everyone.
Earlier this year we reached out to residents to hear how people currently get around and what investment priorities are most important to them – including a reduction in traffic congestion, the expansion of rail and transit systems, more sidewalks and trails for biking and walking safely, improved safety and maintenance, and ride-sharing options. Check out our complete results here.
Now we are seeking additional input from residents – on every block throughout the City, to guide how we prioritize and allocate resources in the recommendations of Atlanta’s Transportation Plan (ATP). Give us your input!
