The Atlanta BeltLine is the most comprehensive transportation and economic development effort ever undertaken in the City of Atlanta and among the largest urban revitalization programs currently underway in the United States.

The BeltLine is a planned loop of parks, trails, transit, and affordable housing that circles the City of Atlanta. Built mostly in abandoned railway corridors, it will include 33 miles of multi-use trails, 22 miles of light rail transit, 1,300 acres of new greenspace, and 1,100 acres of remediated brownfields. The 8.75 miles of open trails are lined with public art installations and a linear arboretum. The parks and trails are home to hundreds of free fitness classes. The Atlanta BeltLine will ultimately connect 45 in-town neighborhoods, provide first and last mile connectivity for regional transportation initiatives, and put Atlanta on a path to 21st century growth and sustainability.
