ACSM-approved Legislation Promotes Walking, Bicycling as Healthier Transportation Alternatives

Jan 26, 2022

The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) is pleased to announce it has added its signature to a letter in support of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, or BIL, the act promotes active transportation, like walking and bicycling, which ACSM recognizes as healthier ways to get to your destination. 

The act also includes the Safe Routes to School program, intended to make it safer and easier for students to walk or bicycle to school. ACSM supports efforts to keep children active and recognizes that incorporating physical activity into their daily routine is an important way to improve their health.
