A commenter on a recent post of mine mentioned a couple of pretty common criticisms about expectations for growth in cycling and transit in Atlanta.
There is a way to get to the Braves stadium by using Cobb County’s transit service. But that service is nowhere near as extensive as MARTA and doesn’t meet the needs of the people who live in suburban poverty.
Even with the hurdles in the early stages of the deal to sell Underground to WRS, voices have been heard and they’ve had an impact.
If you can walk a half mile with a child from your home and arrive safely at an actual destination, you’re doing well. Atlanta needs work.
Even a stripe of paint can carry the weight of mixed messaging within cities that were scarred by decades of discriminatory housing and planning practices -- cities like Atlanta.
Did we really end up with a stadium design in Downtown Atlanta that anticipates most attendees arriving by car?
I’m going to sound like an awful person here: the laying down of pavement on new portions of the Beltline is losing some luster for me.
If you buy parking by the day, you’re not sinking long term costs into a space, and you’re free to commute by another method without losing money.
A section of a bike lane recently installed in southwest Atlanta — and funded in part by a grant — was suddenly removed and replaced with parking spaces.
Nearly all of the new apartments built in Atlanta in the last couple of years have been in luxury buildings. That means the share of overall housing that’s available for middle-to-low income people is shrinking.
An AJC report on a company named Newport USA reveals that it could very well hold the key to revitalizing a large section of South Downtown.
The classic image of city life is crowded, lively streets. But the most iconic images of Atlanta tend to be skyline photos, where the streets are out of view.
