The Campaign for Active Transportation

Whether you represent a community that has been engaged in the campaign for some time or are interested in possibly participating, the following resources may be of help to you.

  • "Active Transportation for America" report—Makes the economic case for a greater national investment in trails, walking and bicycling
  • RTC maintains regular e-mail communications with communities engaged in the campaign, available in the message archives
  • This map shows all the communities engaged in the campaign
  • This one-page document summarizes the campaign in an easily distributed fashion
  • A more generically consumable brochure of the campaign that can be personalized to your local context
  • For communities in the early process of engaging in the campaign, see RTC's guidance document for steps to consider for a strong start. In particular, see Section 2B when crafting your community case statement
  • Videos from inspirational speakers at RTC's TrailLink 2007 conference
  • Issue briefs that help make the case for active transportation in key topic areas
