TIP O' THE HELMET
Ohio Dept of Transportation & Ohio Dept of Health
The Ohio Department of Transportation and the Ohio Department of Health formed a unique partnership to advance active transportation in the state, and the resulting
Active Transportation Plan for Ohio's Strategic Highway Safety Planis a fitting tribute to their collaboration. Yay Bikes! is proud to work with ODOT and ODH to implement these strategies. Yay Ohio!
