An overwhelming majority of Americans support federal funding for biking and walking. So should Congress.
Just two months ago, the Senate passed a transportation bill that included the Cardin-Cochran agreement. This bipartisan compromise would ensure that local governments and school systems are able to access much-needed funds to make bicycling and walking safer and more accessible.
Right now, as selected Senators and Representatives conference to create a consensus transportation bill, we must protect this hard-fought agreement.
Funding for biking and walking has popular support. A recent national survey found that 83 percent of Americans support federal funds for sidewalks and bike lanes. Local elected officials across the country agree that communities need federal funding to build sidewalks, bike lanes, and bike paths.
Will you help us get the message to Congress?
