Do Safe Routes to School programs that increase walking and bicycling have some characteristics in common? A new report conducted by the National Center for Safe Routes to School has found that may indeed be the case.
The grants, made possible through the federal Safe Routes to School program, award federal funding to U.S. schools, municipalities and organizations to increase walking and bicycling safety for students.
Applications are now being accepted for participation in the Safe Routes to School National Course Instructor Training, to be held April 23–26, 2012, in Sterling, Va. Up to 12 individuals may be selected.
