Propel ATL — formerly known as the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition (ABC) and Pedestrians Educating Drivers on Safety (PEDS) — envisions an Atlanta where everyone can move safely, easily, and sustainably throughout the city.

Our mission is to transform Atlanta’s streets into safe, inclusive, and thriving spaces for people to ride, walk, and roll. 

Founded in 1991 by local environmental activists to improve conditions for cycling, our organization worked to make biking equitable, safe, and appealing.

In 2019, our 28th year, we created a new strategic plan with partners, members, and supporters. This 2020-2025 strategic plan responds to changes in our environment and work with the updated mission and vision above and expanded goals, including promoting and supporting walking and transit.

In 2021 we merged with PEDS, and in 2022 we rebranded as Propel ATL.
