Sunday Parkways

Organization: Chicagoland Bicycle Federation/America Bikes

Year: 2006

Amount: 10000

Type: Advocacy

The Active Transportation Alliance received $10,000 for community outreach and coordination as they work to make some Chicago streets car-free on select Sundays. Sunday Parkways, modeled after a successful program in Bogota, Colombia, will devote major boulevards to non-motorized travel, enabling Chicagoans of all ages to cycle, skate, and stroll on safe, inviting streets. This initiative will encourage more people to ride for recreation and exercise, while enhancing the sense of community in Chicago.
