New Haven Coalition for Active Transportation (NHCAT) was formed and successfully launched in Fall 2018 thanks to the members of the Mayor's Taskforce on Bike Education.

NHCAT benefited from the work of the Taskforce which has focused on a variety of issues from a name, mission statement, a list of classes, increasing the number of League Cycling Instructors, preparation of draft budgets, implementation plans, and early fundraising.

From its first meeting, the Board of NHCAT began to build a free and accessible education program for all forms of non-motorized transportation with an initial focus on bike education in New Haven.
