We are always looking for ways to work with more groups, if you are involved in or know of a walk-bike group that may be interested in working with us, please email Local Motion's Community Engagement Manager, Becca Jordan. Groups that we are currently working with are listed below...
The Burlington Walk/Bike Council is an all-volunteer advisory council to the City of Burlington.

The council also leads advocacy efforts and organizes events and activities that promote and celebrate walking and biking in Burlington and beyond. Anyone interested in making Burlington a better and safer place for bicycling and walking is encouraged to attend its meetings (generally held on the 4th Thursday of each month in City Hall Room 12).
