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

Bicycling and walking are viable forms of transportation for shorter trips, and are often important for people who live near transit stops. As transportation costs and congestion increase, walking and bicycling continue to grow in importance here and around the country. Unfortunately, many facilities are not equipped or safe enough to support these modes of transportation. 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.
