BikeAthens is a non-profit organization in Athens, Georgia that works to build equity in transportation. We advocate for a safe and connected city, repair bikes for people who need them, and teach safe cycling to people of all ages.

Equitable Cities is working on a nationwide project, and are seeking Black people in the US from all backgrounds across gender, LGBTQ+, complexion, abilities, ages (18+), immigration and economic status, to participate in a national Black Bicycle Riding Survey. The 20-minute survey will help inform how to best act on the needs of Black cyclists. They want to reach all Black people across the country, regardless of cycling ability or interest.

They are giving away $2,000 for survey participation. Ten individuals and/or families will receive $200 each in a gift card drawing. The first drawing occurred December 25, 2022. The second drawing is on February 1, 2023 (survey deadline). 

Take the survey today! www.equitablecities.com/blackcyclistsurvey/

Athens-Clarke County Transit is currently undergoing a Transit Development Plan (TDP) update. The TDP is a five-year strategic plan that identifies how Transit will meet state and local priorities for public transportation through operating changes, capital improvements, and strategic investments. The update will set the future vision and goals for Transit and serve as a blueprint for system and service investments.

The public is encouraged to participate in the process. An online survey is now available at accgov.com/transit and is open through February 28.

In addition, several pop-up meetings will be conducted throughout Athens during the public comment period, starting with the International Coffee Hour at UGA’s Memorial Hall on Friday, January 20 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. Residents can also share feedback in-person at the Multimodal Transportation Center (775 East Broad Street) on Friday, January 20 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. Other opportunities will be announced through the Transit website, notification system, and social media accounts.
