Topic: School Bicycle & Walking Policies: Addressing Policies that Hinder and Implementing Policies that Help

As key partners in Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs, schools and school districts can play a big role in establishing a culture of bicycling and walking to school. School policies that encourage and support bicycling and walking can substantially boost a SRTS program, both within individual schools and throughout the community. In contrast, a policy that discourages or prohibits bicycling or walking can stop a SRTS program in its tracks. This webinar addresses overcoming such barriers and developing policies that promote bicycling and walking.

When:

 On Demand by Feb. 5, 2010

Cost:

 The National Center for Safe Routes to School partners with America Walks to offer a series of free SRTS-related Webinars.
