About the Fourth Annual Missouri Active Transportation Summit

We invite you to join us for the 2019 Missouri Active Transportation Summit, where we will be sharing ideas for making our communities more active, vibrant, healthy, and economically sustainable through bicycling, walking, and trails. 

  • Sessions from all across Missouri and adjoining states--from the largest cities to the suburbs to the smallest rural communities: Bike share, rural county trails plans, regional and local pedestrian plans, our statewide U.S. bicycle route connections, small towns and large cities integrating bicycling
  • Hands-on mobile sessions
  • Walk and bike tours of Columbia,
  • Meet and mingle with other Missouri bicycle & pedestrian professionals and advocacy staff from around Missouri
  • The annual meeting of the Missouri Chapter of the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals.
  • Make it a weekend--Columbia is one of Missouri and America's most vibrant bicycle, pedestrian, and trails cities with plenty of recreation and entertainment options.

Seats are very limited and filling up fast.

Main Summit topics and themes will include:

  • Complete Streets & Liveable Streets in Missouri: Building support for, passing, and implementing your Complete Streets policy

With the Missouri Bicentennial coming up, how can we use that opportunity to boost trails and active outdoor tourism across the state?
