What happened to the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation?

I first noticed the changes at the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation while visiting my Facebook page. No longer is the group called the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation. Instead, it's now called the Active Transportation Alliance.

As the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation, the organization has successfully pushed for safer and better bicycling in Chicagoland for nearly 25 years. But the organization's leaders determined they needed to push for better conditions for walkers and people who use mass transit.

"From this work, we have learned that active and sustainable forms of transportation rely on each other. With an expanded mission that includes pedestrian and transit advocacy, we look forward to even greater success improving the region’s overall transportation culture," organization leaders said on the Active Transportation Alliance Web site. "It continues to strive to reach its two primary goals — seeing a region with 50 percent fewer crashes and where 50 percent of all trips are made by bike, foot or transit."
