Please share your story with the Active Transportation Alliance

Your experience matters. Personal stories are among the most powerful tools we have to make change happen.

Stories about real-life experiences help the public, policymakers and the press recognize the urgent need for better transit and building streets that are safer and more inviting. 

In short, your stories can serve as the foundation upon which better transportation options get built. Here are some examples of stories we are looking for: 

  • Did you experience a positive life change because you chose to start biking, walking or using transit for transportation? 
  • Did a particular program, local law or piece of infrastructure make your biking, walking or transit trip safer and easier? 
  • Are you part of a school, community group or municipality that accomplished specific goals thanks to support from the Active Transportation Alliance? 

Why are we collecting this information? 

  • Your information could be used in the Active Trans newsletters, blog posts or fundraising materials. 
  • We might share your information when responding to requests from reporters who need real people to interview.
  • To show lawmakers the importance of active transportation as they make budget decisions.
  • For presentations to community groups, fact sheets and brochures and websites. 

We respect your privacy, and we will always ask for your permission before sharing your name and contact information with anyone.
