Fund Sustainable Transportation and Outdoor Recreation in Utah

SEND YOUR LETTER NOW

Governor Spencer Cox’s proposed fiscal year 2022 budget includes two big investments in sustainable transportation and outdoor recreation: $125 million dollars for trails and other outdoor recreation infrastructure and $350 million dollars to doubletrack UTA’s Frontrunner commuter rail service.

In a region susceptible to poor air quality from inversions and with a rapidly growing population, it is critical that Utah makes walking, biking, and public transit a priority. Increased residential density and increased driving is a recipe for congestion, pollution, and endless government spending on new roads and highways.

Join us in sending a letter to your state legislators now.

Join us for a free screening of @motherloadmovie with a Q&A session following with the director Liz Canning, @mayorkaufusi, and a few other moms who bike in Provo. Motherload is a film that captures a new mother’s quest to understand the increasing isolation and disconnection of modern life, its planetary impact, and how cargo bikes could be an antidote. Registrants will receive the link to watch on their own about 36 hours before the Q&A. The Q&A session will be at 7pm on January 14. This event is held in partnership with @provobicyclecollective as part of Provo’s second annual Women’s Bike Summit. REGISTRATION LINK IN BIO.

#bikewalkprovostories Austin Taylor “At the beginning of the pandemic as things shut down, I put my everyday bike in the shed and left it there for a week. I walked everywhere instead as I had more time on my hands and fewer places to go. It was eye-opening. I noticed architecture and public art I hadn’t before. I stopped at local restaurants and shops more frequently to get a snack. I crossed paths with friends and chatted (six feet way, of course). A city that encourages walking and makes it safe to do so will have a healthier, more connected community and stronger economy.”
