Support a Bold Vision for Trails, Walking and Biking
At Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, we know that trails and other active transportation infrastructure will play a critical role in putting Americans to work while contributing to healthy, safe and equitable communities.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, trail use has surged nationwide and people are building walking and biking into their daily lives like never before. The pandemic has tested our communities and proven the incredible value that trails and active transportation infrastructure provide.
As more Americans rely on trails, walking and biking for essential trips, and communities turn to active transportation as an economic strategy, the nation’s federal policies must reflect these changes and the opportunities they represent while providing for the safety of all Americans as they walk, bike and move.
At this moment of transition in the federal government, it is time for a transformational investment in connected active transportation infrastructure to sustain and grow the boom in bicycling, walking, and trail use; create good jobs; and meet mobility needs of underserved communities and historically disinvested populations.
We have a strategic opportunity to work with federal policymakers to put Americans to work building the strategic connections that enable healthy and resource-saving habits.
