Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Tuesday issued new guidelines for how the Atlanta BeltLine can be used during the City’s stay at home order

Effective immediately, the BeltLine’s new hours of operations are:

  • 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.—Prioritized for older adults and those compromised with health conditions.
  • 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.—Opened to all for exercise only, and for those without “other” options for fitness.
  • 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.—Available for transit use only like going to the grocery store or an essential job.

Reps for the Atlanta BeltLine are still recommending that folks stay home and avoid the trail altogether.

“Temporary guidelines are now in effect to ensure more social distancing and reduce trail usage,” the BeltLine tweeted Tuesday.

“Stay home.”
