This year, the New Jersey Department of Transportation has established the first ever statewide New Jersey Walk and Bike to School Week, May 21-25, 2012.
This week, the whole state is working to promote New Jersey’s Safe Routes to School program — a nationwide effort to make walking and bicycling to school safe and appealing. The goal is to help schools make walking and cycling to school safe and fun.
GMTMA is here to help provide technical assistance to schools, community groups, PTAs/PTOs, and other local entities who are interested in starting a Safe Routes program for kids in your community. We can help develop walking school buses, conduct walkability and bikeability audits, create school travel plans and help apply for infrastructure grants. Contact us for more information!
