Atlanta on the Move: Candidates for Mayor on our transportation future

In many ways, we plan our lives around how we're going to get places. Transportation affects all of us in ways both obvious and almost invisible.


Yet with so many candidates for mayor of our city this year, you might not have heard where they stand on the future of transportation in Atlanta, especially transit, walking, and biking. That's why a coalition of advocacy groups working to increase transportation options is hosting this forum, dedicated to walking, biking, and access to transit!


What would candidates do to make streets safe for people walking, biking, and waiting for the bus? What transportation related ideas do they have to keep Atlanta affordable? What investments are most pressing to realizing Atlanta's potential for active transportation modes? Get answers to these and more questions (including some submitted by you!)


Expect a lively discussion and an informative evening. Finger food will be provided. This event is free and open to the public. Children are welcome to attend.
