MSRC Grant Workshops – Come out to Support Funding for Active Transportation!

e-news masthead 2One of the key issues we are working on in Southern California is to increase investments in Safe Routes to School and Active Transporation.  Mark your calendars and join us at upcoming workshops by the Mobile Source Air Pollution Committee as they consider their work program which distributes approximately $14M each year in Southern California for transportation projects the reduce air pollution.

We have seen efforts like this fund projects like the Dodger shuttle, electric vehicles but in other regions these funds support Safe Routes to School and pedestrian and bicycle projects. Let’s support this happening in Southern California! “These workshops are a great time to meet with the innovators who are working on clean transportation projects that improve our health and air quality on a day-to-day basis and hear what their real-world needs are,” explained Greg Pettis, Chair of the MSRC. “At our last series of workshops, we heard repeated requests for more funding for medium-duty vehicles and for bicycle related projects. As a result, we offered funding for these and other innovative projects.”

The MSRC strongly encourages anyone concerned about cleaner transportation options – from either the public or private sectors – to attend one of the upcoming interactive workshops to share their views. The workshop schedule is below:
