Support better biking, walking and transit 


The Chicago region’s current hub-and-spoke transit system leaves nearly half a million Cook County residents stranded in transit deserts.

Many non-profits accept donations of old cars to benefit the organization, but we give you the tools you’ll need to downsize that car for good!

When you donate your car to Active Trans, we'll give you the resources that will make your car-free or car-lite lifestyle a breeze.

Get great perks like free car- and bike-sharing memberships, a free Ventra pass and a hefty bike shop discount. 

Cutting down on car dependence always has meant getting more exercise, lightening your carbon footprint and saving loads of money on insurance, parking and gas. But now, ditching your car means you can get free services and resources to help you get around Chicagoland without using your own car. 

When you donate to Active Trans, you'll enjoy the following benefits.   

  • One year of free membership for Enterprise CarShare ($65 value) and $50 of driving credits.* 
  • 15 percent discount at Ancien Cycles, a great bike shop on Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood. 
  • A free seven-day unlimited ride Ventra pass. 
  • One free year of Active Trans membership ($35 value)
