Many families are under stay at home orders from local, county or state government and have been struggling to find ways to get outside and be active while practicing social distancing. It’s a struggle for millions.
If you are fortunate enough to take advantage of existing bike lanes or hiking and walking trails, you know how important they are. Now more than ever, we need to ensure that everyone has access to walking, bicycling and rolling – or active transportation – which are critical modes of transportation that can get you outdoors and active even while adhering to public health guidance.
That’s why we need you to contact your members of Congress as they consider COVID-19 recovery efforts.
Use this quick form to send an email to your member of Congress asking them to include the Transportation Alternatives Program in COVID-19 recovery efforts.
The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), funds active transportation programs like Safe Routes to School and helps pay for new bike lanes and hiking trails. Investment in infrastructure will be a critical part of economic recovery, and TAP should be a priority.
