Protect Funding for Sidewalks and Bikeways

 Decisions are Underway, Ask Congress to Protect Funding for Sidewalks and Bikeways
An overwhelming majority of Americans—including large majorities of both Democrats and Republicans—support federal funding for bicycling and walking.  It doesn’t have to be a partisan issue.

Take action here.

Senators and Representatives are meeting now to create a final transportation bill, and we need your help to protect the hard-fought Cardin-Cochran agreement.  Without this agreement, states will be able to use bicycling and walking funds towards more highway lanes.  Contact your Senators and Representatives today to ask them to preserve this bipartisan agreement so that communities can access funding for Safe Routes to School, bicycling and walking.
