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!
Local Motion's strategic plan is guided by our mission: to build a better Vermont through biking and walking.
We work statewide to make biking and walking safe, accessible and fun. We help communities become better places to bike and walk. We inspire people across Vermont to bike and walk. And we lead a movement for a bikeable, walkable Vermont.
