Did You Know?

Half of school children walked or biked to school in 1969, but only 13 percent were doing it in 2009.

Volunteer for the Crash Support Hotline!

Do you care about your fellow cyclists and pedestrians?
Do you want an opportunity to help another person?
Can you answer a phone?

If you said yes to the questions above, WE WANT YOU!

The Active Transportation Alliance Crash Support Hotline is ringing and we are training volunteers to answer the phone. This is a unique opportunity to become an expert on assisting cyclists and pedestrians after a crash.

How does volunteering work?
Volunteers will undergo a training program that will give them the tools and confidence they need to effectively answer the Crash Support Hotline. Volunteers will sign up for a two-week period when they will be available to take calls. During their scheduled time period, volunteers will be issued a crash support cell phone and will be expected to return all crash calls within 24 hours.

Interested in becoming a volunteer?
To be a volunteer, you must attend a two-part mandatory training. Please RSVP to with your name, phone number and email address.

Training dates
Both training sessions are mandatory and both take place at the Active Transportation Alliance's office, 9 West Hubbard, Suite 402, Chicago.

Part 1: Legal, Logistics and Crisis Training
October 12, 6:30-8 pm 

Part 2: Answering the Hotline
