For years, crash reports made us think that people who walk to public transit had become the most vulnerable pedestrians in the Atlanta region. To find out, we asked the Atlanta Regional Commission to compare crash locations and transit stops.

The findings were alarming. Over 20 percent of pedestrian crashes here occurred within 100 feet of a transit station or bus stop. And nearly half occurred within 300 feet.

With your support, we’ve raised awareness of risks facing people who walk to transit. We’ve also helped transportation professionals select effective solutions. 

Together, the impacts have been tremendous. 

“Pedestrians have a right to cross roads safely,” the Federal Highway Administration states, “and planners have a responsibility to plan, design and install safe and convenient crossing facilities.”

With your support, our Safe Routes to Transit Initiative is helping agencies answer the question: How can this need best be addressed?
