About Local Motion

Local Motion is a statewide nonprofit organization working to make biking and walking a way of life in every corner of Vermont.

Who We Are

Local Motion was founded in 1999 with a singular (and improbable) goal:  to get people on bikes across the mouth of the Winooski River, where the Burlington Bike Path then came to an end.  Since then, we have grown to become Vermont's statewide advocate for active transportation, vibrant communities, and safe streets.  Our mission is simple:  to bring walking and biking within reach for all Vermonters.

We know there is no one solution that will work for every community.  That's why our work ranges from on-the-ground advocacy and community organizing and project-specific technical assistance to workshops and classes for all ages and bike-friendly resources for businesses and communities.  Let us help you make your community a great place to walk and bike!

We love to hear from our members, supporters, and partners!  Our general phone number is 802-861-2700.  Call us anytime.  For general email inquiries, send us a note at info@localmotion.org.

Stop by our office and visit if you're on Burlington's waterfront.  It's at 1 Steele Street in Burlington, on the Lakeshore Bike Path just north of King Street.  Give a call before you come on by to make sure we haven't headed out for a meeting (or a bike ride!).

How to find us:
Local Motion is located in the "Wing Building" on the Burlington Lakeshore Bike Path, between King and Main streets.  Our primary entrance is on the bike path, not on the street.  If you arrive by car, navigate to "Steele Street" and park in the garage at the end of the street and walk around to the other side of the corrugated metal building.  If you arrive by bike or by foot, just come on down the bike path to our front door!
