STREETS FOR PEOPLE & PEOPLE FOR STREETS
Advocating to fund, build and maintain a
complete, active transportation system.
Our vision is that Denver has people-friendly streets that make biking, walking and accessing transit safe, easy, and convenient for people of all ages, incomes, and abilities.
The Problem: Our City is Stuck
Stuck in indecision
The infrastructure to walk and bike safely has been underfunded for years. At current funding levels it would take more than 50 years to build complete sidewalk and bike lane networks.
Stuck without viable options
Many people have no choice but to drive. They do not have a safe walking or biking route or access to transit to and from their work, school, park, or local store.
Stuck in traffic
More and more people are moving to Denver every day and the number of people who drive alone is climbing. Transportation issues are the #1 concern for Denver residents.
The solution: denver invests
Invest $40 million a year into building and maintaining our walking and biking networks. This will bring Denver on par with other major US cities, and create the options people want to get around safely.
A better bike and ped network means:
Access to amenities, services and opportunities
Better individual and community health
Stronger local and household economies
Improved air quality
Sustainable lifestyle options
If you live in Denver, we need your help!
We are calling on Mayor Michael Hancock and Denver City Council members to increase annual dedicated city funding for sidewalks, bike lanes and B-cycle to $40 million each year in order to meet city mobility goals and complete critical active transportation networks. That level of funding is the only way to achieve complete sidewalks and bike networks within 20 years. The current level of annual funding is only $5 million.
