Maui lacks sufficient bike/pedestrian pathways, said Maui Bicycling League Chair Saman Dias.

“There are so many benefits that help both our economy and health to flourish,  said Dias. “Bike-pedestrian pathways, will help reduce traffic congestion and fatalities, increase public safety, support multi-modal transportation, increase tourism, provide more outdoor activities, reduce obesity and help the community become more eco-friendly.”

The Maui Bicycling League urges residents to sign a petition, email testimony or offer oral testimony to support 2016 budget items providing for increased bike-pedestrian pathways.

Support for these budget items can be emailed via the links below or mailed to the following committees:
