The Atlanta Braves joined their partners in announcing key transportation updates during a briefing at SunTrust Park on Jan. 19, including the release of Cobb County's Transportation Management Plan and partnerships with Waze and Uber.
Cobb County Transportation Management Plan: This plan outlines the community's strategic approach to managing vehicular and pedestrian access to SunTrust Park. In crafting the plan, Lieutenant J.D. Lorens said the county focused on minimizing the impact of traffic on daily commuters by utilizing the 14 primary points of access to ballpark.
Waze: The world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app will collaborate with the Braves and Cobb County to share data and real-time updates with fans and commuters, navigating fans from their doorstep directly to their parking lot. Waze currently serves more than 760,000 active users in the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Gainesville area
Uber: The ridesharing giant has experienced consistent, strong growth in Metro Atlanta, and this partnership will offer an alternative for fans traveling to the game. SunTrust Park will feature a designated drop-off/pick-up zone on Windy Ridge Pkwy, adjacent to the ballpark, enabling fans to safely and easily find a vehicle following the game.
In Waze and Uber, the Braves have identified two leaders in transportation technology to help provide for safe, efficient options for fans headed to the ballpark.
