We choose to live in cities to gain access to nearby services and people. Yet, transportation policies prioritize long-distance, high-speed automotive travel, which create barriers to local trips. By creating safe, convenient ways for people to walk and bicycle, we can create the opportunity to re-connect neighbors and local businesses while improving the health and resiliency of our communities.
