Atlanta Department of Transportation’s Office of Strategy and Planning is responsible for increasing the City of Atlanta’s transportation options, increasing transportation safety, and building high-quality pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure.
The City of Atlanta strives to design, build, operate and maintain a multimodal transportation network that will promote safe, healthy, low stress, affordable, and convenient methods of transportation for all users regardless of age, abilities, race or economic status. Multimodal design will ensure future mobility access while promoting social equity, improved health, economic growth, public safety, recreational opportunity, and environmental sustainability throughout the City of Atlanta.
Administered by Atlanta Department of Transportation (ATLDOT), Vision Zero is a systems-based approach to eliminating traffic fatalities and serious injuries through safer street design, speed management, and other proven strategies.
Tactical urbanism is a low-cost, temporary strategy for changing our streets and public spaces, while advancing longer-term goals related to safety and better design. In collaboration with the Department of City Planning, Atlanta Department of Transportation has developed a guide and process to allow communities to lead these design changes on their neighborhood streets.

Action Plan for Safer Streets (APSS) is a $5 million plan to bring accelerated safety redesigns to Atlanta’s streets. As part of the plan, more than 20 city corridors have been identified for rapid implementation changes to improve safety for people who walk, drive, take transit, ride a bike or e-scooter.
Through the APSS, Atlanta will more than triple its on-street protected bike network to more than 20 miles of safer streets.
