The university launched an ambitious bike planning process last year, with support from the Atlanta Regional Commission.

Led by Mr. John Steward, program manager for the Partnership for Urban Health Research at the School of Public Health, the university conducted a campus wide survey of attitudes around cycling, designed to identify needed improvements and key factors involved in making cycling a viable option for community members. The School of Public Health also organized a first of its kind university bike summit for Atlanta.
