Ryan Gravel, a Georgia Tech student in 1999, wrote his master’s thesis about the idea of a Beltline in Atlanta. Fast-forward 17 years and his college paper has sprung to life.

But, the Beltline is more than a local novelty. It’s more than a nationally recognized shift in Atlanta’s infrastructure. It’s part of an international movement.

“There’s a lot of people watching what we’re doing, but every city I go to, there are similar projects there that are similarly transformational. People are really working and fighting for change, and a lot of those efforts are built around obsolete, old infrastructure,” Gravel said.
