Mobility Month 2019

Charleston Moves is a nonprofit organization that encourages mobility by bicycle, foot and public transit for the improved health and well-being of greater Charleston — our people, neighborhoods, business districts and overall economic competitiveness.

Every day, we work toward a vision of a connected Charleston, allowing the community to choose among many safe ways to travel. When we’re able to ride a bike, walk or use public transit, it means equitable opportunities and better access to affordable food and housing, as well as job security, for citizens. It means an improved local economy. It means opportunities for civic engagement. It means cleaner air and water, climate change mitigation, improved public health, and reduced traffic congestion.

Each May, Charleston Moves hosts a series of events to bring the community together around safe, connected and equitable multi-mobility. Events range from all-ages group rides to neighborhood walks, lectures and guided tours. The events are socially and geographically diverse throughout the county, supporting biking, walking and public transit. By participating in Mobility Month, you support our advocacy for safe, connected, equitable streets for people.
