Champaign-Urbana Ranked #8 in Bicycling & Pedestrian Report

A new report issued by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy entitled “Active Transportation: Beyond Urban Centers, Walking and Bicycling in Small Towns and Rural America” designated the C-U area as #8 among all cities in the nation. This is an impressive accomplishment for our community.

Besides Champaign-Urbana ranking #8 there are several interesting quotes included in the report: “In Billings—and I think throughout the country – there has been a paradigm shift. Trails are no longer viewed as community amenities: they’re truly viewed as an essential infrastructure for business recruitment.” (CEO, Billings, Montana, Chamber of Commerce)
