Thanks to our generous donors, Active Trans is able to carry out our important work throughout the Chicago region.

Groupon campaign to help Active Trans keep cyclists safe at night

The City of Chicago requires cyclists riding at night to have a front headlight and rear reflector. But it's not just a law — lights are essential to staying visible and safe on our streets. With Daylight Saving Time ending, even more cyclists will be caught in the dark without lights.

So Active Trans is running a campaign with Groupon’s G-Team to host a flashmob that will equip more than 200 cyclists with free headlights while educating them about staying safe on the street.

Groupon followers are invited to donate toward the project on November 3-4, with donations being matched by the Law Offices of James M. Freeman, P.C.
