Working on improving walking, biking, and accessibility in your community now? Thinking about doing so in the future? You should plan to attend this Statewide Active Transportation Summit to meet people doing this work in various parts of PA, see examples of work underway, and discover key elements to help you bring active transportation improvements home for your area. This event will build on the standalone AT Summit held in 2022. It will run concurrently with the final day of the PDC Conference, extending to the end of the day. People are welcome from around the commonwealth, from a variety of backgrounds, and with interest in all active modes. We are very excited to be able to announced our Keynote Speaker, Anna Zivarts. Anna is a disability mobility advocate in Washington State. She is the director of the Disability Mobility Initiative with Disability Rights Washington and the author of the forthcoming book from Island Press, When Driving Is Not an Option.

The program will start at the Yorktowne Hotel for the breakfast keynote with breakout sessions both before and after lunch taking place both at the Hotel and in the York College Center for Community Engagement site directly across the street. Be prepared to get in some steps (but not too many) walking back and forth. For those coming in to town the day before, there will be an Adaptive Cycle Expo at the York Revolution Ballpark, both on the plaza out front and in the concourse during the first half of the game. There will also be optional walking and biking tours of downtown active transportation infrastructure at the end of the day on Wednesday afternoon after indoor sessions conclude. The cost to register is $75 (in advance) per registrant, and goes up to $90 for registrations completed after June 2. Registration for the Summit is discounted for those with full PDC conference registration, and you must include that among the tickets you sign up for, if you plan to attend. Registration includes lunch and snacks. If the registration is a hardship, please contact the organizers as scholarship funds may be available. Registration is now open!
