The Active Transportation Alliance is based in Chicago, Illinois, and the Alliance has done the majority of its work in the Windy City. However, it also has a global reach, which focuses on making biking, walking, and public transportation, safe, fun, and convenient. Visitors will find the "Our Work" tab near the top of the page helps explain all the different types of work they do to encourage and support "transportation options that are healthy, fun, and environmentally-friendly." Their strategies include "Better Blocks", "Safe Routes to School", "Consulting & Services", and "Legislative Agenda". Some of them rely on the community to get in touch with the Alliance, and others rely on cooperation from the community. The "Resources" tab has links that allow visitors to stay on top of new developments and "connect with active transportation resources." Some of the much-needed, and unique, resources include two for bicyclists, "Crash Support" and "Know Your Rights". Visitors will also find the "Lakefront Trail Conditions" useful for learning about special conditions on the paths, such as "construction projects, special events, and ice and snow on the path".
