Georgia Tech becomes an official member of the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition!
While the two organizations have partnered on many projects in the past, including the university’s Starter Bikes program, the Institute’s administration wanted to further its support this month by becoming an official corporate member of the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. Georgia Tech believes this financial contribution to ABC will make the Institute and its surrounding neighborhoods safer, easier, and more attractive to bicycle.
One great example of this is a recent grant application that Georgia Tech’s Parking and Transportation Services and the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition have partnered on to improve bicycle safety at the intersection of 5th Street and West Peachtree Street in Technology Square. Read more about GT and ABC’s hard work in a recent Creative Loafing article here. If awarded the grant, the Midtown Alliance and Georgia Tech have earmarked $8,000 in matching funds to complete the project.
Georgia Tech is excited to be an official member and looks forward to our continued partnership with ABC.
