Bucky FullerThe State of CT ranks 35th out of 50 states for per capita funding of bicycle and pedestrian projects, according to the Bicycling and Walking in the US: 2012 Benchmarking Report, despite experiencing a 76% increase in bicycling to work from 2000-2009, and a 14% increase in walking to work over the same period.

Sustainable transportation encompasses and overlaps many transportation modes and disciplines.
