National Active Transportation Diversity Task Force

The National Active Transportation Diversity Task Force is composed of a broad array of experts and practitioners from around the country who engage in a national conversation and support outreach that elevates street scale from a local issue to a state and national issue.

Organizations champion active transportation improvements to increase physical activity in underserved communities. Task Force members help identify and assist states and local communities with Safe Routes to School, support implementation of the federal transportation bill MAP-21, promote Complete Streets, and secure new funding to support active transportation in the communities with the most need.
