Alliance for Community Choice in Transportation
The Alliance for Community Choice in Transportation (ACCT) is a non-profit group founded in 2001 that promotes the use of alternative modes of transportation to reduce the number of cars on area roads. The current Executive Director is Vince Caristo.
The group offers many programs to help encourage people to travel without using a car. These include a Bike Mentor program, the Bike Action Team, the Safe Routes to School program to build sidewalks, as well as a weekly Bike Week. ACCT also develops a regional mobility map and administers the Safe Routes to School program in Charlottesville.

In 2010, ACCT partnered with Bike Charlottesville to survey cyclists in the community to find out their priorities for infrastructure development. With 582 responses, 82% said they wanted Charlottesville and Albemarle County to develop more bike lanes and dedicated trails.
