City of Atlanta Creating Department of Transportation

From Rebecca Serna, Executive Director of Atlanta Bicycle Coalition:

We’ve advocated #4ATLDOT for years through our 2017 policy platform, our mayoral forum, and as members of the ATL DOT stakeholder committee.

Thanks to the smart, tireless, and humble work of Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and Councilmember Andre Dickens, we are closer than ever to the dream of safe, equitable mobility.

We’re proud of the advocacy work that’s gotten Atlanta this far. None of this would be possible without the support of our members. But as I told our ABC staff and board shortly after Mayor Bottoms announced the creation of an Atlanta Department of Transportation, “Now comes the hard part.”

We want a Department of Transportation that truly embodies the future of Atlanta’s transportation network: safety, equity, and mobility.

We will push for equity and safety to be the core values of both the new department and the person who will lead it.

Our new ATL DOT leader needs to be someone with a deep understanding of history and a clear vision for the future.

Transportation is the underpinning of our daily lives – get it right, and we barely notice it. Get it wrong, and we harm communities and degrade our quality of life.

Join us as we fight for the next phase of Atlanta’s transportation future.

This is our shot. Let’s get it right.

Thank you,
Rebecca Serna
