We are moving to the next stage of leveraging comments and insights from community, stakeholders, residents and agency staff in San Bernardino County. In April, San Bernardino County active transportation partners came together to discuss the state of things for pedestrians and cyclists and created a vision in moving forward. Past meeting information here. The reaction was overwhelmingly in favor of building relationships, best practices and collaboration in the region.

The Los Angeles County Active Transportation Coalition is launched and is excitedly taking its first steps! Join us!
Today partners from across the Los Angeles County region, representing Long Beach, Downey, El Monte, South Los Angeles, and organizations like Community Health Councils, Cali Bike Tours, Bike San Gabriel Valley, Advancement Project, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, Natural Resources Defense Council, and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health provided testimony at Metro Policy and Programming committee in support of efforts to increase funding for walking, bicycling, safe routes to school and complete streets efforts in Los Angeles County.
This group is coming together in support of increasing Los Angeles County Transportation investments for walking and bicycling projects past the 1% allocated in the County 2009 Transportation plan (Metro 2009 LRTP, p.15). With close to 20% of all trips in the County (2009 NHTS data) on foot or bicycle, and close to 40% of the roadway deaths (2010 SWITRS data) people out walking and bicycling, organizations and individuals are coming together to speak out to address and change this.

Breaking news – Today (April 15) the California Legislature made a strong move in support of Safe Routes to School. The Assembly Transportation Committee unanimously passed AB-1194 (Ammiano), the Safe Routes to School bill, with an 11-0 vote to maintain dedicated and level state and federal funding to continue the highly successful program at its current rate of $46 million/year.
California has been the leader on Safe Routes to School since 1999, and the federal program was modeled after California’s success. The enactment of federal transportation legislation, MAP-21, last summer eliminated dedicated federal dollars for Safe Routes to School, but today California pledged to continue to lead the nation with level funding for the program.

The City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) invites you to save the date for Thursday, March 21, 2:00 – 4:00 in the Caltrans Building (100 Main Street, LA 90012 in Conf Room 1.040B) to review milestones and progress to date on the city’s forthcoming Safe Routes to School Strategic Plan.
The City of Los Angeles is prioritizing need for infrastructure improvements among their 495 schools that fall within the City’s boundaries. This has been something the SRTSNP and many other partners have been working alongside LA DOT and partners both internally and externally. Among the many things about this effort that inspire me – is the relationship between the school district and transportation planning agency underway with this effort – not to mention current efforts to loop in community based organizations. And I love how data is informing this project prioritization effort – it’s inspiring to see the City of Los Angeles endeavor toward this. Read more of this post
