Trailnet Launches Business Membership Program

Trailnet has launched a new Business Membership Program offering businesses the opportunity to support positive change in their community. The investment Trailnet receives from its business members will lead to innovative partnerships focused on  making walking and biking a way of life in the St. Louis region.

Executive Director Ralph Pfremmer says: “In a perfect world, collaboration is abundant, everyone is included and transparency is the standard. The Trailnet Business Member understands that together we can foster a quality of life that supports a prosperous, healthy region.”
