ATPs aim to create safe, easy and fun opportunities for residents of all ages and abilities to choose human-powered transportation options. Human-powered transportation includes biking, walking, skating, scooting, and rolling to get where you want to go. When it’s safe and easy to choose human-powered transportation, communities can reverse the nationwide trend toward obesity and chronic diseases associated with inactivity.
Communities with ATPs are eligible for funding from the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency. The Ohio Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control recommend ATPs as a proven strategy to promote healthier communities.
