You're already an Active Trans member at heart. Become a member in action!

In addition to its advocacy, Active Trans organizes the annual Bike the Drive

You want safer streets in your community so you can cross the road without worrying about getting hit. You wish the Chicago region had more bike lanes and trails so you would feel more comfortable biking to work or visiting the park with your family. And you wish you had reliable and affordable transit options that were easy to get to and easy to use.

Even though you might not realize it, you're probably already an Active Transportation Alliance member at heart. And Active Trans is already working on your behalf to improve conditions for biking, walking and transit. But by becoming a member in action, you can put more power behind their vision of a Chicagoland with half as many crashes and where half of all trips are made by biking, walking and transit. Active Trans is at a critical point on the road to making its vision a reality, and they need support from people like you to make it happen. Your support is the strength behind the movement!

Joining Active Trans is a painless commitment of just $1 or more. Join by Sept. 30 at with coupon code HEART and Active Trans will enter you in a raffle for a $100 REI gift certificate.

This is really great! For just $1 that's really not much of a commitment at all, and it goes to a good cause. I do wish there were more bike lanes in Chicago. I spend my summers there and always find it difficult to bike downtown. -Rachel from Cincinnati movers
