Safe Routes to School Regional Network Meeting

On Tuesday, February 28, 2017 30+ advocates and practitioners joined us at the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments to talk about all things Safe Routes to School in the Greater Washington, DC region!

The exciting lineup of speakers covered a wide range of issues from Washington D.C.’s universal bicycle education program, to regional funding opportunities, equity and public health initiatives, and much more!

We want to thank all who participated and helped make this a great Network Meeting.  Don’t forget to visit the Safe Routes to School Greater Washington DC page for more information about upcoming workshops and webinars!
