LA Metro Holding Safe Routes to School Summits in October. Register Today!

Metro SRTS logo

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has announced the dates for six Safe Routes to School Regional Summits in LA County this October. These summits are being by held to gather feedback from community stakeholders on the state of school and youth travel within LA County, identify resource and capacity needs and foster successful implementation and sustainable Safe Routes to School program growth. The expected outcomes of the summits include identifying activities, programs and responsibilities for a regional Safe Routes to School Program; match specific partner organizations with feasible and implementable activities and programs; identify strategies for implementation (both short and long-term) for inclusion in Metro’s Active Transportation Strategic Plan and identify strategies to increase competitiveness of LA County in future grant funding opportunities like the state’s Active Transportation Program (ATP).

Registration for the summits is available here. We highly encourage our partners in LA County to attend these summits and contribute to the discussion on Safe Routes to School. These summits are a great opportunity to showcase your Safe Routes to School efforts, share your successes and challenges and meet others working on Safe Routes to School across LA County.

More information is available on this flyer and this fact sheet. Dates, times and locations are below:
