Rutland County

Rutland County is the second most populous county in the state of Vermont. Situated near the Massachusetts and New York borders and with the junction of US 7 and US 4, the county seat of Rutland is a critical transportation corridor. The city also is home to a remarkable nationally recognized historic district. Bike and pedestrian issues have become increasingly important in the county recently, culminating in the 2016 Walk/Bike Summit in the Paramount Theater of downtown Rutland.DowntownRutland.jpg

Local Motion supports the efforts of local communities to make Rutland County and its towns a safer place for walking and biking. We have worked with new cadets at the police academy in Pittsford to make walk and bike safety a critical part of office training. We also have worked to support the work of the Rutland Area Physical Activity Coalition. We’ve also helped students at Neshobe Elementary and the Rutland Tapestry Program to learn how to pedal with style and confidence through our Bike Smart trainings.

To become more involved in making Rutland County a safer place to walk and bike, consider helping to start a local walk/bike group, or hosting a bicycling education event in your school or workplace.
