Sustainable transportation needs you now more than ever

The cancellation of Fifth Third Bike the Drive due to COVID-19 has caused an unprecedented need for Active Trans at a time when our advocacy work is more important than ever.

We need your help to ensure we can continue to fight for safe, equitable transportation options that support our essential workers and respond to new needs as the region opens up again.

That’s why we’re hosting Active Trans Giving Day on May 22.

Thanks to the generous support of hundreds of donors we have already raised $60,000 to support our work! We could not be more grateful for this outpouring of support!

Can you help us keep the momentum going? Can you make a donation so that we can us raise $75,000 this Giving Day? Every single donation will help fill the need at this critical moment.

Your gift will support our vital COVID-19 response work as well as our ongoing efforts to advance walking, biking, and transit advocacy in communities throughout the region.

Our advocacy work hasn’t slowed down in the face of the pandemic, but we need your help to ensure it keeps going.

You don’t have to wait until Giving Day to give. Make your donation today.

As a show of thanks, anyone who donates $20 or more will get a free entry to our Virtual Fifth Third Bike the Drive event!
