Safe Routes Partners with
Nutrition Programs


Champions for Change and the Marin County Health Department have joined Safe Routes to Schools in promoting Walk and Roll Wednesdays with a special message to eat a healthy breakfast too!

The Latest from Capital Hill

Two new bills would advance Safe Routes to School funding and transportation safety.

With less than two months to go before the current MAP-21 transportation law expires, members of Congress are championing their priorities. The National Partnership is supporting two new bills: S.705, which would strengthen and increase funding for the Transportation Alternatives Program, and HR 1274, which creates a grant program to support Vision Zero initiatives around the country.  

The Safe Routes National Partnership federal blog has the details on both bills, and you can take action and ask your Senator to sign on to S. 705. With your help, we can build support for funding for Safe Routes to School, bicycling and walking in the next transportation bill.
