We are your voice for active transportation!

What's New

2019 Justice Project

In anticipation of the next Unicameral session, we are doing some homework.  The recent Tuesday Gives events in Omaha and Lincoln are funding a researcher to help us dive into all 146 bicycle and pedestrian fatalities across the state over the last 10 years.  We'll evaluate the circumstances of each crash and if laws were broken, along with any charges filed against drivers.  This information will be crucial in forming our strategy for the next Unicameral where we will push hard for safer streets across Nebraska. 

If you are interested in helping us fund this Justice Project, please consider making a donation to fund our law student intern completing this work.

2019 Bike/Ped/Scooter Count: Farnam & Harney Corridor in Omaha

Bike Walk Nebraska is conducting a bicycle/pedestrian/scooter count to gauge the level of active transportation traffic along the Farnam and Harney corridors in Omaha on July 9, 11, and 13 for an upcoming Omaha pilot project.  We are looking for volunteers to monitor selected intersections in 2-hour shifts to count people walking, biking and scootering.

If you are interested in volunteering for this very important project, please click here for more information.
