2016 Alliance for Biking and Walking Benchmarking Report


Share On Social!

With funding through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the Alliance for Biking and Walking conducted the 2016 Alliance Benchmarking Report exploring the rise of walking and biking and the intersections between transportation, health, economics, equity, government funding, advocacy efforts, and more.

By illuminating key indicators that shape American mobility, the Benchmarking Report can help you make the case for safe, equitable, active transportation options in your community and begin conversations to improve or establish effective, equitable, active transportation systems in your community.

“Positive health outcomes from increased active transportation may have the greatest impact on low-income communities and youth.”
