City of Atlanta Bike Share Health Impact Assessment

City of Atlanta Bike Share Health Impact Assessment
Location Atlanta Georgia
Organization ICF International; Atlanta Bicycle Coalition

ICF International, in partnership with Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, completed an HIA to inform a bike share program in Atlanta, Georgia. Specific health impacts considered by the HIA included safety and injury, opportunities for physical activity, and air quality. The HIA recommended including a focus on health disparities as an integral part of bike share, incorporating health-related performance measures, engaging residents in decision making; and selecting sites that would benefit a diverse population.

Outcome

Public sector stakeholders reviewed the HIA after its publication, and Atlanta Bicycle Coalition has had the opportunity to work with the city to identify areas where recommendations from the HIA could be integrated into the bike share launch.
