Help make Springfield more bicycle friendly

Please take the time to complete the Springfield Area Transportation Study Citizen Survey. The Springfield Area Transportation Study is seeking community input to help guide the process of extending the Long Range Transportation Plan through 2040. This survey is intended for everyone in the area, but as bicycle riders, we need to make sure our opinions are reflected in the information funneled to the SATS committee:

SATS Survey - opens in a new window

For the long range plans to contain elements for bicycling, it is important for us as bicyclists to tell planning groups what our needs are. Please fill out the survey and pass this message along.

The survey is available until April 30, 2014.

Members have come to appreciate the wide variety of destinations, distances and pace to accommodate cyclists of different abilities and skill levels. [more]
