We are not going to let 20 years of progress in biking and walking come to a halt!
By Brighid O'Keane on July 26, 2012
It’s true that the transportation bill, MAP-21, slashed guaranteed funding for biking and walking. But thanks to you and thousands of other advocates who called, wrote, and e-mailed Congress as the bill was being written, we are still very much in the game.
Our partners at the America Bikes coalition are committed to ensuring that states and local governments use every opportunity in the new law to increase the safety and convenience of biking and walking.
Together, we can maximize biking and walking investments — both under MAP-21’s new Transportation Alternatives program and under the larger core transportation and safety funds.
We expect every state to:
We are developing an action plan to coordinate our collective efforts for the best results in every state. We are already working on a suite of tools and resources to help you and your organization take full advantage of MAP-21. We will alert you as those resources become available.
With your help and dedication over the coming weeks and months, the national renaissance in biking and walking will continue in communities all across the country.
Thank you for all that you do for biking and walking.
