Active Transportation impacts a lot of worlds. Businesspeople rely on accessible, human-friendly shopping districts, families need ways to be active, communities need smart development and traffic managers need ways to expand capacity. And that's just the beginning. Check out the Partnership for Active Transportation at Partnership4AT.org to see how Active Transportation relates to you.
What is Active Transportation? It's lots of things. From safe places to walk to school, to stimulating local businesses by encouraging accessible main streets. It's broad and it's diverse. Just like the Partnership for Active Transportation, which is made of up industry leaders, advocates and experts from Public Health to Real Estate, Transportation Planning to Tourism - all of whom believe that Active Transportation is a crucial piece of their future.

The kids of East Baltimore really switched on to the joys of riding a bike and looking after their local environment during Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s (RTC) Earn-A-Bike Program there earlier this spring.
Thanks to the financial support of The Coca-Cola Foundation, RTC and our local partners in Baltimore were able to not only give these young students a new bike, but also give them a unique education in the life of their neighborhood park, and just what an urban farm is all about.
