About the Coalition

Our founders had the idea for the Greenway, then formed the Midtown Greenway Coalition to get it built.   

The corridor used to be a trash-filled trench that people avoided.  Now, it contains a world-class biking and walking trail that's the envy of cities across the nation.  In fact, the Midtown Greenway trail has been named the best urban bike trail in the USA!

Our work didn't end after the Greenway was built.  Now, we work to protect and enhance it.

We fought to keep high-voltage overhead power lines out of the Greenway – and we won!

We encourage developers to create "Greenway-friendly" buildings along the corridor that don't block sunlight from the trail and create new access ramps and stairs.   

We operate a Trail Watch patrol, which bikes the Greenway at night to help keep it safe.

We encourage government agencies to repair the trail when needed, and are currently advocating that the entire trail get on a schedule for repaving.

We work to install more lighting and create safer street crossings.

We operate greening and cleaning programs that help keep the Greenway green.

We're a coalition of individuals and organizations that love the Midtown Greenway and want to protect and enhance it.  

We raise all of our own funds and receive no operational funding from the government.

Use and love the Greenway too?
