A big thank you to everyone who took part in Atlanta Streets Alive in 2015! Our open streets initiative turns car-clogged streets into car-free streets for people to enjoy for the afternoon. This year over 179,000 Atlantans explored open streets safe for walking and biking and celebrated our unique neighborhoods and business districts. ABC and partners started this initiative with two events a year in 2010 and increased to three yearly in 2013.
