Support better biking, walking and transit 


Only 24 percent of jobs in the region are accessible by transit in 90 minutes or less by a typical resident — and that number drops to 12 percent in the suburbs.

Join the fight for better biking, walking and transit by becoming a member today.

Your membership funds important programs and initiatives that:

  • Build more trails, bike lanes, sidewalks and transit options
  • Win legislation that supports safe, orderly streets that are friendly for biking and walking
  • Encourage more people to bike, walk and use public transportation
  • Educate thousands of people of all ages annually about safe bicycling

Members also get extensive benefits, including discounts at over 100 bike shops and businesses, Active Trans’ 2013 seven county Chicagoland Bike Map, event discounts, a discount on a Divvy bikeshare membership and more! Members are also eligible to take our Safe Cycling Class for only $15 (nonmember fee is $50).
