We are a grassroots movement of concerned citizens, organizations and businesses working together to increase healthy transportation policies and necessary infrastructure investments in the National Capital Region.
OBJECTIVES:
• Achieve a truly healthy transportation network in the National Capital Region, from the perspectives of personal and societal health, the environment, and economics;
• Increase physical activity, improve the built environment, decrease pedestrian and cyclist injuries;
• Help ensure vulnerable populations, and ultimately all residents, are well-served by an accessible transportation network;
• Help people have better access to their communities, local businesses, social support services, and green spaces by their preferred mode of healthy transportation; and
• Help ensure that greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector fall.
