Best Eco-Commuting Neighborhoods In Atlanta

eco-commute neighborhoods atlanta
We are all about encouraging eco-commuting as we welcome the warm months! As we’ve discussed in other posts, eco-commuting is simply getting from place to place through other means than a gas powered vehicle. Many people take to biking, riding e-scooters, walking, or using MARTA.
 
In Atlanta, if you want to be an eco-commuter, you have to be pretty selective about which neighborhood you decide to live in.
 

So, where do you start?

If you’re looking to make the move to an Atlanta neighborhood that favors the eco-commuting options, the first thing that you need to think about is the Perimeter. You may have heard the terms OTP (outside the perimeter) and ITP (inside the perimeter) and are wondering what that means.
 
ITP gives you a faster paced lifestyle right in the midst of public transportation, pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods, top attractions, and a plethora of dining, shopping and activity options.
 
OTP, on the other hand, is going to include neighborhoods that are outside of the hustle and bustle, but still offers great community amenties, such as swimming pools, tennis courts, parks, and great school systems.
 
As far as neighborhoods go, there are nearly 250 defined neighborhoods, in two main counties – Fulton and Dekalb, within three main districts – Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead. Other popular districts that you will often hear about include East Side and West Midtown.
 

Where To Live Without A Car:

 

  • Buckhead

Buckhead is filled with new condos and apartments near the Lenox and Buckhead MARTA stations. This area has plenty of shopping, dining, and night-life.

 

  • Midtown

Midtown is one of the most walkable areas in Atlanta with plenty of restaurants and nightlife options just steps away from three MARTA stations. There are great apartment options just south of Piedmont Park as well as other luxury apartments and condos that are more centrally-located.

 

  • Downtown

Living in Downtown Atlanta provides access to six MARTA stations making it easy to hop on a train to anywhere you’re headed. Basic services including post offices, banks, library and drug stores are easy to access on foot.

 

  • Decatur

Decatur is charming, safe neighborhood in Atlanta. It is a great place to live if you work downtown, as it is a train ride away. You can also take advantage of the bus routes to reach other east side destinations.

 

  • Inman Park

If you are looking for a quieter neighborhood that still offers green commute options, Inman Park may be for you. It provides close access to the BeltLine and is located near a MARTA station for your convenience.

 

  • Piedmont Park

This neighborhood is a very safe option that includes easy access to great restaurants, nightlife venues and basic services, such as grocery stores. Piedmont Park and the BeltLine are also nearby for recreation or bike commuting. The neighborhood isn’t as convenient to the train, but does offer four major bus routes that provide convenient access to all MARTA rails lines.
