Mission & Vision


Sustainable Streets is a nonprofit organization committed to building healthy communities by encouraging people of all ages and backgrounds to engage in active transportation for their everyday mobility needs. We carry out this mission through research, community plans and programs, and education on sustainable transportation alternatives, including walking and bicycling. Sustainable Streets works in partnership with researchers, volunteers, educators, advocates and community planners to make non-motorized transport an essential part of sustainable community strategies.


Sustainable Streets envisions streetscapes and transportation systems that harmonize community, nature and the human spirit, to support social interaction, resource efficiency, physical activity and health.
