The Atlanta BeltLine is transforming the city with a
combination of rail, trail, greenspace, housing and art.
It will ultimately connect 45 intown neighborhoods, provide
first and last mile connectivity for regional transportation
initiatives, and put Atlanta on a path to 21st century economic
growth and sustainability. The beauty of the Atlanta BeltLine is
that it offers not only modern conveyances and exciting new
development, but it is a living, breathing part of the community; not
simply a means of getting somewhere, but a destination unto itself.
It offers a chance for Atlanta to redefine what it is to be a neighbor,
to be a community, to be a region, and to share all that it has to offer.
The Atlanta BeltLine utilizes an existing 22-mile historic rail corridor
that encircles the City of Atlanta as its foundation. Pedestrian friendly
rail transit and 33 miles of multi-use trails will follow this corridor and
spur off from it. The completion of the Atlanta BeltLine will bring
together 45 intown neighborhoods and also link them to the entire
metropolitan Atlanta region through a collection of transit offerings.
