Did You Know?

While the Chicago region’s population grew by 18 percent since 1980, the traffic increased by 66 percent in the same period.

Your calls made a difference, thank you!

We emailed our members and spread the word in our blog about potential cuts for active transportation.

You made calls to your representatives. It worked.

We just got word from our national partner, the Alliance for Biking and Walking, that of the nearly 600 amendments to the 2011 House budget bill (HR1), biking and walking, Transportation Enhancements and Safe Routes to School were not singled out to be cut!

There may be a need over the next few weeks for more calls to garner support against cuts when this goes to the Senate and we will keep you updated.

Sincere thanks to everyone who made calls to rally legislators to avoid making these cuts. All of us at Active Trans appreciate your voices and support.
