Chicago’s first protected bike lane on Kinzie St. increased ridership by 55 percent without increasing traffic congestion for cars.

Cheers to our volunteers!

Last night, Active Trans held a party to show appreciation for our legion of dedicated volunteers.


As a non-profit, Active Trans relies heavily on its volunteers to donate their time to help with advocacy work, office work and events — ranging from massive to miniscule.

Active Trans volunteers provide community outreach, facilitate campaigns, fix bicycles, manage hotlines, and assist with special events and fundraisers, such as the annual MB Financial Bank Bike the Drive.

A sincere “thank you” goes out to all of our hard-working volunteers from 2013, and an additional round of applause goes to the following individuals who received awards for their tireless work and commendable efforts.
