Trailnet’s 12 Walk Bike Ambassadors are located throughout the St. Louis region. They assist with Trailnet advocacy campaigns and events, and help address walking and biking issues in their own communities. For example, Don Orf, our Ambassador in the City’s St. Louis Hills neighborhood, has been working with Alderwoman Donna Baringer, the Streets Department, and the St. Louis Hills Neighborhood Association on Complete Streets improvements. . . .

Margie Oliver of Hazelwood is working with Trailnet and public officials in her community to bring a Complete Streets presentation before the City Council. Her goal is to see Hazelwood adopt a Complete Streets policy and become the 10th jurisdiction in the St. Louis region to do so.

MoBikeFed comment: Trailnet recently created the Bike Walk Ambassadors program and trained 12 Ambassadors from all around the St. Louis region--part of Trailnet's work to become even more effective in its local and regional advocacy.

As the examples above show, the program is proving to be a success. More information:
