The TPO convenes a diverse group of organizations and individual volunteers to organize our community’s Walk and Bike to School Days. Local media coverage with details for the most recent events are below:
TPO involvement with these events stems from our earlier work with the federal Safe Routes to School program. While there is no longer a standalone federal Safe Routes to School funding program, safe routes to school projects are eligible for federal funding under the set-aside of Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) program funding for transportation alternatives in the FAST Act, the most recent federal transportation legislation.
Contact Jonathan Gibbons at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in organizing a walk or bike to school day event at your school.
