In July a new federal transportation law, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), took effect and it means new challenges and opportunities for bicycling and walking projects.
Advocacy Advance, a partnership between the Alliance for Walking and Biking and the League of American Bicyclists, is working to help state and local advocacy organizations ensure that states and regions use every opportunity in the new law to increase the safety and convenience of biking and walking.
The organization developed a toolkit that focuses on the Transportation Alternatives
(TA) program and on spending funding available through the existing bicycling and walking
programs. The kit is useful not only for for local groups working on state policy, but state agencies and Metropolitan Transportation Organizations.
