Help us make biking, walking and transit better in your community.
This year, as we celebrate our 30th anniversary, Active Trans is embarking on a groundbreaking new campaign for the future of transportation in our region. Support our work with a donation and you’ll help us kick off the next 30 years with our boldest vision yet, Drive Less, Live More! This exciting new campaign consists of four areas of focus:
Bikeways for All: An extensive network of trails and low-stress bikeways
Everyone in Chicago and its suburbs deserves safe and comfortable bike routes that allow them to get to places they need to go.
Transit Future: A public transportation system that works for everyone
Ten new rapid transit lines in Cook County connecting to existing transit lines would help people get to work and school while reducing traffic congestion.
Bike Walk Kids: Safety and mobility education
All elementary school children in Illinois should be taught how to walk and bike safely, and high schoolers should be taught how to bike, walk and take transit safely in driver’s education classes.
Vision Zero: Reducing and eventually eliminating traffic fatalities
Our communities must work toward eliminating traffic fatalities by embracing this comprehensive approach to street safety.
Donate to Active Trans this holiday season and your gift will be matched dollar-for dollar and you’ll be entered to win a 2015 Surly Cross Check bicycle!
