In the news

A big part of the work we do at the Active Transportation Alliance involves educating the public about our goals of better biking, walking and transit.

We’re a trusted local authority on these issues, and that’s reflected by the media coverage about our campaigns, advocacy work and events.

By getting the word out in local media, we invite more people to understand and support our mission.
