Did You Know?

Chicago’s first protected bike lane on Kinzie St. increased ridership by 55 percent without increasing traffic congestion for cars.

Your mission for September: Get one member!

They already bike, walk and take transit. Now get them to join!

Our members are our power – the more members we have, the more successful we will be growing biking, walking and transit in our communities.

So we’re giving you an assignment – get just one new member to join Active Trans!

Our momentum is building. More cyclists than ever are using bike lanes. Transit ridership is hitting record levels. More communities are working to make their neighborhoods walkable and bikeable places.

You can help us sustain our momentum. We’re sure you know people who ride bikes or transit and appreciate walkable communities. They’re already members at heart – we just need them to join us in action.

Here are four ways you can succeed in your mission to get one member.

1. Send this message (or one like it ) to the members at heart you know:

I’ve accepted a mission to grow the movement for biking, walking and transit in Chicagoland by just one person. I know you’re already a member of the movement at heart, but our movement needs you to join us in action. I’m a member of the Active Transportation Alliance, and I’d like you to join, too. I share their vision for Chicagoland to substantially reduce crashes and increase trips made by biking, walking and transit. Help me accomplish my mission! It’s a painless commitment of just $1 or more, but every member we add puts more power behind that vision. Please join by Sept. 30 at www.activetrans.org/membership with coupon code HEART and Active Trans will enter you in a raffle for a $100 REI gift certificate.
