From our friends at the Rails to Trails Conservancy –
In August, AAA Mid-Atlantic called for the elimination of critical, established programs that fund trails, walking and bicycling from our nation’s transportation trust fund. De-funded programs would include Transportation Enhancements (TE), the largest funding source for trails and active transportation infrastructure.
AAA says it supports all types of transportation, but that doesn’t square with the above position, which would divert crucial money away from walking and bicycling and toward the highway system.
Imagine the surprise when RTC learned that AAA Mid-Atlantic has a trail right outside their building that their employees get to enjoy every day… funded by TE! So they decided to go see it for themselves.
