Protect Walking/Biking Funding

Action Alert Banner
Ask Your Member of Congress to Protect Walking/Biking Funding in the Transportation Bill.   
Red Take Action Button

 that Americans support federal funding for walking and biking!

Senators and Representatives are meeting NOW to create a final transportation bill, and we need your help to protect the hard-fought  Cardin-Cochran Amendment
.  Without this amendment, states can direct walking and biking funds toward more highway lanes!

Contact your Senators and Representatives today to ask them to preserve this bipartisan amendment - ensuring that local governments and school systems have access to funds to make walking and bicycling safer and more accessible. Also at risk in the current debate are three core federal programs: Transportation Enhancements, Recreational Trails and Safe Routes to School. 

Funding for walking and biking has popular support. A recent Princeton survey
 found that 83 percent of Americans support federal funds for sidewalks and bike lanes.

Thank you for standing up to tell Congress that Americans support funding for walking and biking.
