ATLANTA, GA — The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO), announced Wednesday a partnership with five cities—Atlanta, Boston, Denver, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia—to accelerate the implementation of high-quality bike and transit corridors by the end of 2020. This work, part of the American Cities Climate Challenge, will help the cities meet, or beat, their near-term carbon reduction goals.

“Atlanta is poised to build a 21st Century transportation system,” said Keisha Lance Bottoms, mayor of Atlanta in a press release. “With our forthcoming launch of the city’s first-ever Department of Transportation and access to the NACTO network’s expertise, we will emerge from the Climate Challenge with world-class bike lanes, important new sidewalk connections and a team ready to deliver sustainable mobility options for all Atlantans.”
