Often, it is the incredible success stories of local communities that can best convey what a trail, pedestrian or bicycling project can achieve.

RTC has compiled a collection of short “case studies” that you can take with you to your next meeting with an influential decision maker or official. Our story bank demonstrates how trails, walking, and biking are making a real impact in communities across America—large and small, urban and rural. A simple and compelling story can make a lasting impression with a decision maker and convince them of the value of these projects.

Choose a story that highlights a project in a community near you, or bring along an example from outside your region that showcases the type of vision you want to achieve.
