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: Making it safe, accessible, and fun for everyone to bike, walk, and roll in Vermont.
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.
Local Motion's 2022-2026 Strategic Plan features our recently updated mission: "Making it safe, accessible, and fun for everyone to bike, walk, and roll in Vermont."
Our vision: More people will walk, bike, and roll in Vermont for recreation and transportation, improving their health while benefiting local communities and the environment. Local Motion is Vermont’s leading resource for all issues related to walking, biking, and rolling.
