Mission Statement

The mission of Active Transportation Alliance is to make bicycling, walking and public transit so safe, convenient and fun that we will achieve a significant shift from environmentally harmful, sedentary travel to clean, active travel. We advocate for transportation that encourages and promotes safety, physical activity, health, recreation, social interaction, equity, environmental stewardship and resource conservation.


Whether you bike, walk or take transit to the store, to work, for exercise, or for fun, you are entitled to safe and enjoyable experience. Since 1985, the Active Transportation Alliance has attacked the issues of heavy traffic, limited trails and careless drivers. We believe biking, walking and transit can improve the way people live in a world that favors automobile use at all costs. We want a future that offers people the chance to choose active transportation as a healthy way to get around.

We envision a Chicagoland that is a fun and healthy place to live, work and play. We want to reduce crashes in the region by half and and see half of all trips in the area made by walking, biking and transit. To reach these goals, we plan to build a movement around active transportation, increase safety, encourage physical activity, and create a world-class transportation network.
