Join APBP this year in Vancouver, Canada, for an inspiring and informative gathering of passionate professionals and activists alike, working towards a common goal – healthier cities for all – in a city that has been coined as one of the healthiest in the world. Register today!

As the 2016 Olympic Games recently concluded in Rio, read about how the 2010 Winter Olympics have helped in the realization of Vancouver’s longstanding ambition to turn the region into a network of transit-oriented, walkable, neighborhoods with a world-renowned quality of life.

By September 30:

If your state has unspent (aka “orphaned”) funds that were originally earmarked before Sept. 30, 2005 for specific projects, then pay close attention to FHWA’s guidance about repurposing those funds.

Approximately $2 billion is at stake!

Visit the FHWA website to see if your state has funds available.

Several of APBP’s allied groups are working with their members and followers to make sure these funds go to bicycle and pedestrian projects.

Deadline is September 30!
