Safe. Healthy. Affordable.
About the Active Transportation COI
The Active Transportation Community of Interest (AT COI) is a broad, inclusive partnership of many individuals and organizations interested in improving the health of the watershed’s people, environment, and economy. Active transportation promotes healthy lifestyles by allowing people to move freely throughout the watershed using their own human power.
The AT COI works collaboratively to develop and maintain a system of trails, sidewalks, bike lanes and boulevards, local and regional pathways, and public transit routes connecting all of the Puyallup River watershed’s communities, parks, schools, cultural sites, business districts, residential centers, and other important public spaces.
Education and engagement are a vital part of our mission, and we support community events like bike rides with Pierce County elected officials and programs such as the Major Taylor Project.
We strive to create a sense of community and we hope you’ll join us!
The AT COI works to build relationships with local decision-makers, community organizations and residents to share information about the benefits of active transportation.
The AT COI supports the development of an interconnected active transportation network of trails, sidewalks, bike lanes and boulevards, local and regional pathways, and public transportation within each jurisdiction and to each town, city, and municipality in the watershed and county – including key destinations and regional networks. This network is well integrated with transit operations.
The AT COI supports events and programs that educate, encourage and reduce barriers that residents face when choosing to use active modes of transportation during daily life.
The AT COI has a staff team that works together to implement the AT COI workplan, facilitate group processes, and capture and communicate AT COI successes and stories.
