Cycle Atlanta: Phase 1.0 Study
A Supplement to the Connect Atlanta Plan


The Cycle Atlanta: Phase 1.0 Study represents a strategy to create a complete and connected network of high-quality bicycle facilities in the core of the city. The focus of the study is on five cycling corridors that extend from the Atlanta BeltLine into the center of the city. Completing the bikeway network along each of these corridors will improve cycling conditions and expand route options that are desirable for a wide range of cyclists. When implemented, the improved and expanded bikeway network will enhance connections between neighborhoods, job centers, transit stations, tourist attractions, shops, and restaurants, as well as other daily destinations.

The Cycle Atlanta: Phase 1.0 Study is a supplement to the Connect Atlanta Plan, which is the adopted transportation plan for the City of Atlanta. While the Connect Atlanta Plan includes a city-wide network strategy to improve cycling routes, it does not provide specifics related to facility types and alignments along the five corridors that are the focus of this study.

Additionally, since the adoption of the Connect Atlanta Plan, the City of Atlanta has continued to experience tremendous growth in cycling rates and bikeway facility design has advanced considerably. Now, new and innovative bikeway facility treatments go beyond shared lane markings and standard bike lanes, which were the main bikeway facilities described in the Connect Atlanta Plan.

To address the growing demand for better cycling conditions and provide more specific details for implementation, this study was developed. In short, the Cycle Atlanta: Phase 1.0 Study is an implementation strategy to develop dedicated, high-quality bikeways in the core of the City.
