Support better biking, walking and transit 


Half of school children walked or biked to school in 1969, but only 13 percent were doing it in 2009.

Do you like bike lanes, walkable communities and excellent public transportation?

Become a member of the Active Transportation Alliance so that you can help bring cleaner, healthier transportation options to communities throughout Chicagoland. 

In recent years, we’ve celebrated some major victories, such as the creation of a new Lakefront Trail and better bikeways in the city and suburbs. 

But there’s still so much work to be done. Help make it happen.
