People who live in areas with sidewalks and bike lanes are more active, have cleaner air, and experience fewer crashes and collisions. In order to create more neighborhoods like this, we need streets built to share™.

People of all ages and abilities should be able to move safely and conveniently where they live, work and play. Whether we walk, use a wheelchair, bike, ride a bus or train, or drive a car, we all need roads that accommodate us. However, many places don’t provide safe ways for people who walk and bike to share the road with cars and trucks.

When streets are set up for everyone, we are all safer and healthier, as we are provided more opportunities to include physical activity in our daily routines. Instead of focusing solely on motor vehicles, our neighborhoods should be designed and built for the safety and health of all travelers with streets built to share.
