We envision a comprehensive transportation network that all Athenians can use with confidence and ease.

Our mission is to promote cycling, walking, and transit as solutions to transportation needs in Athens through education, advocacy, and community service.

Tyler Dewey

Executive Director

Tyler joined the Peace Corps after graduating from Michigan State College of Law. Unable to drive for his two years in Kazakhstan, Tyler grew to love all forms of transportation: foot, bike, van, bus, train, or horse. A life-long cyclist—he celebrated his first birthday on a family bike tour—Tyler believes a more walkable, bikeable Athens is a more lively, vibrant Athens.
