Support A More Connected America

 

The Connecting America's Active Transportation System Act, co-sponsored by Reps. Jared Huffman (Calif.-2), Daniel Lipinski (Ill.-3) and Chris Pappas (N.H.-1), will provide $500 million in direct funding annually to help communities and regions across the country build connected active-transportation systems to ensure people can get where they want to go safely by foot, bike or wheelchair.

This proposal, coupled with increases in funding for Transportation Alternatives and the Recreational Trails Program, would provide critical resources for communities to build safe, convenient and accessible places for people to walk, bike and roll.

The Connecting America's Active Transportation System Act is a major leap forward in creating the next major transportation bill that ensures trails, walking and biking are integral parts of connecting communities across the country.

Take action now: Tell your representative to make wise investments in trails, walking and biking in the next transportation bill by signing on to the Connecting America’s Active Transportation System Act. Personalized messages work best. Be sure to tell your elected officials why connected trail and active transportation networks are important to you.
