League of American Bicyclists Rolls Out Program to Promote "Safe Routes to School" Nationally

Planning for a national initiative on providing safe bike routes to schools

The League of American Bicyclists (incorporated as the League of American Wheelmen) organized a national meeting, conducted a training session and produced a video to influence the scope, uptake and effectiveness of the national Safe Routes to School Program.

Key Results

  • The League of American Bicyclists helped launch The Safe Routes to School National Partnership at a meeting organized under this grant. The partnership is a collaboration of bicycling and walking groups, health advocates, schools, government agencies and businesses, which works to advance the Safe Routes to School Program.

  • The league produced Safe Routes to School, a four-minute video to promote the program.
