Join Active Trans or renew your membership


Do you like bike lanes, walkable communities and excellent public transportation?

Become a member of the Active Transportation Alliance and help bring cleaner, healthier transportation options to communities throughout Chicagoland.

In recent years, we’ve celebrated some major victories, such as the creation of a new Lakefront Trail and better bikeways in the city and suburbs.

But there’s still so much work to be done.

That’s why we need your help.

If you join or renew before December 31, 2021, you’ll get a limited-edition t-shirt that will share the message of better biking with the people around you.

As a new or renewing member, you’ll also have an opportunity to meet Active Trans staff and other members like yourself at our member meeting to be held online December 2.

Your membership:

  • Supports our efforts to create safer spaces for biking and walking, such as a continuous trail along the Chicago River and the implementation of Chicago’s Vision Zero plan to reduce and eventually eliminate traffic fatalities;
  • Directly contributes to our advocacy work, including the creation of the Suburban Bikeways for All report, which documents the state of biking in the suburbs and serves as a resource for local advocates;
  • Gives support to the movement for cleaner, healthier transportation options across the region and keeps you informed on how to stay involved with your community.
