Alta Durham Recognized as Gold Bicycle Friendly Business
Today, the League of American Bicyclists recognized Alta Planning + Design’s Durham office with Gold Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB℠) designation. Alta’s Durham office joins a cutting-edge group of 1,118 current Bicycle Friendly Businesses, and 10 other Alta offices to be recognized, that are transforming the American workplace.
“The League of American Bicyclists is excited to recognize this latest group of new and renewing Bicycle Friendly Businesses for making their workplaces and their communities safer, happier, healthier, and more sustainable through bicycling,” said Amelia Neptune, Director of the Bicycle Friendly America program. “We applaud these businesses, including Alta Planning + Design, for leading the charge in creating a more bicycle-friendly America for everyone.”
Alta’s corporate office in Portland was recognized in 2012 as one of the nation’s first Platinum BFBs. Alta’s Durham office was originally recognized in 2016 as a Silver Level BFB and moved up to Gold this year.
Natalie Lozano, Vice President of Development in our Portland headquarters comments: “From coast to coast, Alta’s 200 staff in 30 offices bring our mission to life, creating active communities through healthy transportation and recreation choices. Whether riding to meetings or biking our kids to school, each of us demonstrates our commitment to the health of our cities and the environment each and every day.”
Alta Planning + Design encourages bicycling as an easy option for transportation, and provides amenities such as secure parking areas, repair stations, and showers, as well as incentives like an annual bike repair stipend, wellness benefit, and transit reimbursement, as well as our own Transportation Demand Management program, “Go Alta,” to encourage even more staff to choose active modes of transportation.
