Sunday Parkways

Organization: Active Transportation Alliance, formerly Chicagoland Bicycle Federation

Year: 2006

Amount: $10,000

Status: Project complete

Type: Advocacy

Address: Chicago, IL

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.
