CycleHop has told Curbed Atlanta that the blue Relay bike share program will remain in Atlanta with plans to upgrade to electric bikes in 2020. The city-supported bike-sharing program, which launched in 2016, now has competition from other e-bike and e-scooter providers, but could skirt many of the new dockless device regulations, including the nighttime ban.

PARK(ing) Day at Lenox Square is Friday, Sept. 27, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and will see 50 parking spaces transformed into temporary public parks to call attention to how public space is created and allocated. Sponsored by Livable Buckhead, the event will feature food and refreshments for purchase, along with games and activities. For more information, visit www.livablebuckhead.com/parkingday.
