An Accessible Region through Active Transportation


Location: 1001 Wiekamp Hall, IUSB Campus

The daily decisions we each make on how to travel has an impact on our communities, the broader region, and beyond. MACOG is working to create an accessible, connected active transportation network that can provide individuals with more choices throughout the region. By developing long-range plans, funding active transportation projects, creating a regional trail brand, and providing technical assistance to local governments, MACOG is envisioning a healthier future.
