Please ask your Representative to co-sponsor HR 5231, the Transportation
Alternatives Enhancement Act, introduced by Representatives Espaillat (NY-13) and Larsen (WA-2).
The Transportation Alternatives program represents almost 50% of all federal funding for bicycling and walking networks and trails in our communities. This bill will increase that funding, and make it easier for local governments to access it. Read more about the changes in our blog.
The House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee is working fast to have a full transportation bill ready by this spring. We need to show strong support for HR 5231, the Transportation Alternatives Enhancement Act, NOW to keep our bike-forward proposals front and center in the debate over the future of our transportation system.
