Act fast for bike/ped/transit funding

We need to act fast! The economic stimulus package could mean good things for biking, walking and transit. Tell your congressperson and state legislator that you want bike, pedestrian and transit projects funded in the stimulus. Find out who represents you at Look for more information in the upcoming ModeShift newsletter.

Specifically, we are working to get funding for the following projects:

Bike boulevards and bike lanes (Chicago)
