On Thursday July 17th, from 2-3 p.m. Eastern, the Safe Routes to School National Partnership is hosting a free webinar:
Buses, Boots, and Bicycles: Getting Safe Routes to School and Student Transportation Departments to Work Together
Student transportation departments usually focus on busing children to school, but they have the potential to do much more. This webinar will address how collaboration between Safe Routes to School and student transportation departments can enable children to get to school safely, while supporting a comprehensive school transportation system. Speakers will discuss barriers to collaboration, strategies for overcoming those obstacles, and specific ways to work together. The webinar will also showcase a school transportation department that gets kids to school by foot, bicycle, scooter, school bus, and carpool.
