Over the years WELL has supported expanded public transit options, electric charging stations, bike and pedestrian plans and trails, put on bike shows, and held educational forums to raise awareness of transportation alternatives and reduce our community's reliance on vehicles. These issues dovetail with others, for example: local food (reducing the need for importing food supplies), local economic opportunities (so residents can live near their jobs), and improving the safety and attractiveness of our community for pedestrians and bicyclists.

WELL also submitted comments on the Caltrans Bypass early in the review process (see redirWELL Bypass Letter) and has served as a co-sponsor with Save Our Little Lake Valley in (unsuccessfully) seeking better alternatives to the 4-lane Freeway Bypass. (See Bypass Updates from WELL Newsletters, 2013-2015 below.) Now, as the Bypass nears completion, we are still working to improve the transportation grid within and around Willits.

Many other transportation-related documents are available on this web site including several studies completed for the City of Willits. //{ed: this link broken, will fix} You can find those here.//  Also many other community groups work on transportation-related issues, for example the WHAT Walks, Haehl Creek Trail, downtown planning, safe routes to school,  etc.
