State Report Cards for Walking, Bicycling and Physical Activity

The Safe Routes to School National Partnership has recently developed state report cards to provide a snapshot of how supportive each state is of walking, bicycling, and physical activity for children and adults as of 2016, and it has good things to say about Washington!
The report cards primarily look at state policy focusing on four key areas: Complete Streets and Active Transportation, Safe Routes to School and Active Transportation Funding, Active Neighborhoods and Schools, and State Physical Activity Planning and Support. 

You can view the full report here, which includes a detailed explanation of how the states were graded. The map below shows each state’s overall grade. Click on the map to view each state’s report card.
