Each year, the Active Transportation Alliance honors local nonprofits, businesses and individuals that have demonstrated strong support for healthier, cleaner transportation options throughout the region.
It's our chance to recognize all the great work that happens around active transportation in Chicagoland.
This year, we hope you can join us on March 7 for our 2018 Awards Reception. Mix and mingle at this happy hour-style event at Chicago’s preeminent technology incubator, 1871.
Take part in a silent auction while enjoying food and drinks, including beer provided by Revolution Brewing.
Let's toast local individuals and businesses that have made a significant impact on active transportation in the region.
This year's awardees are:
Ken Griffin — Community Leadership Award
Griffin generously donated $12 million to create separate bike/foot trails on the Chicago lakefront, bringing to fruition a much-needed improvement that Active Trans has sought for nearly a decade.
Expedia — Business Leadership Award
Expedia has participated in Active Trans' Bike Commuter Challenge for a number of years, providing creative incentives to get its staff biking and hosting what has consistently been one of the city's top Commuter Challenge pit stops.
Kelley, Drye and Warren — Volunteer Leadership Award
Kelly, Drye and Warren, LLC, is a full service law firm that has provided outstanding pro bono legal assistance to Active Trans for more than four years. The firm has given Active Trans expert advice on contracts, audits, liability waivers, human resources, policy research and more.
