This October, The Clean Air Campaign, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition and local transportation management associations have organized the first-ever Bike to Work Challenge. The Bike to Work Challenge encourages current and new bicycle commuters to compete as individuals or on teams with other cycling enthusiasts in the metro Atlanta area.
To reduce state employee commute times, Governor Nathan Deal recently initiated the Georgia CommuteSmart Program. With 4 options for agencies and state employees, the program allows more flexibility for work travel schedules.
More than 1.6 million voters sent in advance ballots and headed to the polls for yesterday's general primary, one that saw the defeat of the T-SPLOST and the approval of Sunday liquor sales in select counties.

In 1999, Georgia Institute of Technology graduate student Ryan Gravel completed his master's thesis, a plan for a 22-mile loop that would connect 45 historic Atlanta neighborhoods, promoting in each greater access to mass transit, public parks and recreational trails.
