Generating and Prioritizing Funding for Active Transportation

MPOs allocate millions of dollars from the federal government for transportation for things like roads, bridges, biking and walking infrastructure, and air quality improvements. In this process, there is ripe opportunity for advocates to lock in new funding for active transportation and transit.  

This fact sheet lays out success stories, best practices, and resources for advocates looking to secure sustainable funding for active transportation and transit at the regional level. It also explains how advocates can work with regional transit authorities to influence how transit funds are invested, either by sitting on transit agency committees or running campaigns to support better transit projects.
