Funding Beyond the Feds

How State Governments Generate Active Transportation Funding

This fact sheet explores some of the more popular methods local governments are using to generate funds for active transportation.

Increasingly, states are responding to calls to make walking and biking safe, convenient, and connected by creating funding streams for pedestrian and bicycle safety education, sidewalks, bike lanes, crosswalks, and other street features that support active transportation. While states can access federal funds to build active transportation infrastructure, due to increasing demand and decreasing revenue from the federal gas tax, many states are generating their own revenue to fund transportation, including active transportation.
