CA Mayors Support Active Transportation in the Federal Transportation Bill


Earlier this month over 370 Mayors and Communities leaders organized through the support of the United States Conference of Mayors and the National League of Cities submitted a letter to Senator Barbara Boxer, Chairman of the
Senate Environment and Public Works Committee in support of the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) in the Federal Transportation Bill.  

The TAP provides funding for programs and projects for pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure projects to improve access to public transportation and enhanced mobility, community improvement activities, and environmental mitigation; recreational trail program projects; safe routes to school projects; and more.
