BikePed Plan

Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force

The Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force acts as a subcommittee to the Transportation Coordinating Committee (TCC) at ARC. Membership consists of city and county transportation staff, recreation and planning departments within the Atlanta region, representatives from state and federal agencies and advocacy groups. The Task Force is also open to any interested individual or group.

The Task Force meets to advise on updates the regional plan, to address bicycle and pedestrian issues as part of the long- and short-range transportation planning process at ARC, and to serve as an information exchange forum.

Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month at 10 a.m. in the Harry West Room at ARC.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning

Walking and bicycling provide convenient, healthy, and fun transportation options for many trips in the Atlanta region. As transportation costs and congestion increase, walking and bicycling continue to grow in importance here and around the country.

ARC has been promoting safe, functional, and regional bicycle and pedestrian planning since 1973, and continues to update its process to address new needs and trends. Our current plan update is underway and expected to be adopted in May 2016:

Regional Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan Update (2015)

The Atlanta Regional Commission is currently updating our Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, expected to be adopted in May 2016. 

The goal of this plan is to support active communities where bicycling and walking are safe, healthy, fun, and normal daily activities. The strategies outlined in ARC's plan aim to improve the safety, mobility, and growth of a 21st Century region. 

Draft Plan Documents:

The plan is divided into three parts for recommendations, regional travel assessment, and public input:
