Background

In Los Angeles County, the Safe Routes to School National Partnership and Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition are working to support improved policies and increased levels of funding for active transportation and complete streets. One of the ways SRTSNP and LACBC do that is by developing information for partners on potential policy solutions and their impact, through the Los Angeles County Active Transportation Collaborative, which endeavors to support improved transportation policy priorities for Los Angeles County specifically regarding transportation funding, equity, data collection and evaluation.
