Did You Know?

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

Lend a hand to Active Trans

Come hang out with like-minded folks at some of the season’s most exciting events! We need your help. Your time helps support better biking, walking and transit in the Chicago region. /

Currently, we have a great need for Bike Valet volunteers. Help us park and secure bikes at no cost to attendees at major city festivals. This service is much appreciated by the public, and the bike valet contracts help raise much-needed funds for Active Trans.

The next bike valet opportunity is Blues Fest in Grant Park, Friday, June 10 through Sunday, June 12. Sign up online or email Scott at

We also need your help greeting bike commuters at Bike to Work Week Bike Pit Stops. Cheer on bike commuters and help pass out free coffee and goodie bags. Check out the full list of Bike Pit Stops (formerly called Commuter Stations) and other Bike to Work Week events, June 13-17. Email to sign up.

There are loads of Active Trans volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Want to know more? Check out this complete list of opportunities. Check back often – we’re always adding additional opportunities.
