Did You Know?

Roughly every three days, one person biking or walking is killed by someone driving a car in the Chicago region.

A mission for Active Trans members: get a member in December!

Our members are our power – the more members we have, the more successful we will be creating better conditions for biking, walking and transit in our communities.

So we’re giving you an assignment – get just one new member to join Active Trans!src=http://www.activetrans.org/sites/default/files/IMG_2644.JPG

Our momentum is building. More cyclists than ever are using bike lanes. Transit ridership is hitting record levels. More communities are working to make their neighborhoods walkable and bikeable places.

You can help us sustain our momentum. We’re sure you know people who ride bikes, take transit and appreciate walkable communities – we just need them to join us in action. 

Get a member to join by January 31, 2012 using code GMC and you and your new member will be entered into a raffle for two $50 Kozy Cyclery gift certificates (one for each of you).

Here are four ways you can succeed in your mission to get one member.

1. Send this message (or one like it ) to people you know:

I’ve accepted a mission to to help enhance the movement for biking, walking and transit in Chicagoland by just one person. I know you’re already a member of the movement, but our movement needs you to join us in action.

I’m a member of the Active Transportation Alliance, and I’d like you to join, too. I share the organization's vision to substantially reduce crashes and increase trips made by biking, walking and transit in Chicagoland.

Help me accomplish my mission! It’s a painless commitment of just $1 or more, but every member we add puts more power behind that vision. Please join by January 31, 2012 using code GMC and both us us will be entered into a raffle for two $50 Kozy Cyclery gift certificates (one for each of you).
