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. That’s why we need your help.
