Since 1998, Walk/Bike Nashville has sought to make active transportation an option for Nashvillians, no matter where they live or where they’re trying to go.  Nashville has made great progress, but we still have a far way to go.  We can’t do it alone – we depend on our area pedestrians and bicyclists like you to continue our work and help spread our mission.  Join Walk/Bike Nashville today to help us build a more walkable, bikeable, and liveable Nashville.

Volunteer

Once you have a better sense of what we do, consider getting more involved by volunteering, or becoming a Walk Bike Ambassador or Instructor.

Around Town

Let your voice be heard! One of the best things we can do to support pro-walking and biking policies is to show up. Here are a couple of ways to share your voice with our city officials:

  • Mayor's Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) -- The Mayor's BPAC meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every other month. Walk/Bike Nashville will always post a recap after each meeting on our blog, but the meetings are open to the public so feel to swing by yourself!
  • Metro Budget -- Bike/ped funding is largely determined by our city's budgeting process. Learn more about our current budget here and be sure to attend the city council's budget hearings each May-June.
  • Nashville's Transportation Plan -- Our city's transportation plan, Mobility 2030, is going to be updated soon as part of Nashville Next. Sign up for updates on the progress of the update and be sure to get involved in the public comment period.
  • County-Wide Parks and Greenways Plan -- We all love walking and biking on our greenways! You can see the current plan here, but it is slated to be updated in 2015 so make sure you sign up for updates by  sending a message to metroparks@nashville.gov with the subject "subscribe".
  • If you have additional questions about our city's transportation infrastructure, contact us!

    I have been riding the Green Ways for a very long time. I have noticed that people , forget safety while on the Trail. The biggest problem being , bringing children, and pets on the trail in the summer months. Heat is the main factor while trying to stay hydrated.These people need to be educated . They need to learn to bring water for their children and pets. We may not need water while riding , walking , or jogging. But our children still GET HOT!!!! We need to educated these people and ask them to check their supply before going on the Green Way. Dogs are very different. They will follow you where ever you go. As a rule of thumb. If you put you hand down on the trail, back side down, and it is hot. Your dog will burn their feet .Try walking them in the grass. It will be more comfortable on them. Also , Dogs need water as well ,as we do. The people are doing better on the trails than they used too. Is it possible to put up Rules and safety warnings , at the Trail Heads ,. ( Shelby Bottoms, Lebanon Pike, and Stones River) to inform people to bring more water in the summer months. Big bold Hot Color Signs to inform everyone, to check their hydration supply. I have rode the trail with extra water and First Aid , and tire repair kits to help out. I ride from Shelby Bottoms to J Percy Priest Dam. Many listen with interest. Many don’t care. I think we should get volunteer help to Patrol all year round. Give these people
    a bright vest and train them to on what to do, if there is an emergency. Where are they ? What is wrong ? Help with guiding the Park Police to their location. These are just a few things ,that need to be addressed. I will continue , to Patrol the Green Way in my free time. See you all out there. Ride Good . Ride Safe. Enjoy the Great Outdoors
