BABC Successfully Advocates for $17 Million in Regional Safe Routes to School Funding

BABC successfully advocated for MTC to start the first regional Safe Routes to School (SR2S) program as part of their Climate Initiative.  Working with our partner agencies, Transform and Greenbelt Alliance as well as our local coalitions, BABC secured $17 Million in STP/CMAQ funds for SR2S for 2010-2012.  MTC is currently developing the guidelines for their regional Safe Routes to School Program.  We will post a link to the guidelines for this new program as soon as they are available.

 

BABC will continue to work with MTC in their stakeholder committee that is putting together the guidelines that will shape SR2S programs in all of the 9 counties in the Bay Area.
