We’ve developed state report cards which provide a snapshot of how supportive each state is of walking, bicycling, and physical activity for children and adults as of 2016.
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.

The map below shows each state’s overall grade. Click on the map to view each state’s report card.
The report cards were developed by the Safe Routes Partnership as part of a partnership with the YMCA of the USA, working together to support communities in becoming places where children and adults can be active and healthy. Support for the report cards was provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
