The Atlanta BeltLine is a 22-mile multi-use trail along a former railway corridor around the core of Atlanta. A Georgia Tech student proposed transforming the former rail corridor into a trail in a 1999 master’s degree thesis. The Atlanta BeltLine aims to reconnect neighborhoods and communities divided by infrastructure, improve transportation, add green space, promote redevelopment, create affordable housing, and showcase arts and culture. The BeltLine has opened in sections, including the Eastside, Westside and Northside trails.
