In our 2010 membership survey, Active Trans members were asked which of the organization's efforts they considered most important. In response, members said lobbying/advocacy for legislation and funding to improve bicycling, walking and transit was what they valued most.

That's why Active Trans recently partnered with the League of Illinois Bicyclists to survey 273 Illinois congressional candidates about their personal transportation habits, as well as their views on bicycle and pedestrian safety and transit funding.

Check out the full results and access a copy of the original survey to send out in case we didn't get a response from a particular candidate. After reading the results, get ready to bike, walk or take transit to the polls this November.
