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. That’s why we need your help.  


Your membership:

  • Supports our efforts to create safer spaces for biking and walking, such as a network of protected bike lanes in Chicago and more infrastructure to protect people walking.
  • Directly contributes to our advocacy work, including support for local advocates in suburban communities as they embark on campaigns to expand trails and biking infrastructure.
  • Helps advance efforts to improve our public transit service by making it faster, more reliable, and more accessible.
  • Gives support to the movement for cleaner, healthier transportation options across the region and keeps you informed on how to stay involved with your community.

Members get extensive benefits:

Our individual membership starts at $35.

(Chicagoland Bike Maps are no longer being produced by Active Transportation so they are no longer a member benefit.)
