The Connecting America's Active Transportation System Act has been introduced in the U.S. Senate—a companion to the House bill (H.R. 5696) introduced just weeks ago.
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 introduction of the Connecting America’s Active Transportation System Act in the Senate is a major leap forward to help ensure that the next major transportation bill includes trails, walking and biking as an integral part of connecting communities nationwide.
Take action now: Tell your senators to make wise investments in trails, walking and biking in the next transportation bill by supporting the Connecting America’s Active Transportation System Act. Personalized messages work best. Be sure to tell your senators why connected trail and active transportation networks are important to you.
