On Thursday, January 14th, from 1-2 p.m. Eastern, the Safe Routes to School National Partnership is hosting a free webinar and question and answer session:
The New Federal Transportation Bill: What’s the Impact on
Safe Routes to School?
January 14th 1-2:00pm Eastern
In December 2015, the U.S. Congress passed a new transportation law called the FAST Act. The law provides five years of funding for the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), which supports Safe Routes to School, walking and bicycling projects, along with some policy changes.
In this webinar, the National Partnership’s federal policy lead, Margo Pedroso, will review the changes to TAP along with other provisions in the FAST Act that provide opportunities for Safe Routes to School funding and policies that make communities safer for kids and families walking and bicycling.
This webinar will include a substantial question and answer session with attendees ‘“ this is your chance to learn more about federal transportation law and to ask specific questions about how it works in your community.
This free webinar is part of a regular series of Safe Routes Learning Center webinars brought to you by the Safe Routes to School National Partnership on topics related to Safe Routes to School and other policy and program initiatives that can increase walking and bicycling to school and in daily life.
