The federal government recently approved MAP 21, a two year transportation bill. Despite overwhelming support for increased investments in infrastructure for bicycling and walking, MAP 21 reduces the overall funding available to these modes, eliminated dedicated funding for Safe Routes to School at the federal level and makes it possible for states to divert portions of the Transportation Alternatives money to other uses. For more information click here.
Currently in California, implementation legislation will soon be developed to determine how the funding in MAP 21 will be distributed in California. The Safe Routes to School National Partnership is working closely with partners from across the state to ensure that funding for bicycling and walking is maintained.
Join us on August 16 to learn more about what’s happening and how you can get involved in efforts to protect investments in California that support active transportation. Your help could make a difference!
