Newton Safe Routes to School works to increase the number of students walking and biking to school and around the city for their health (active transportation) + reduce congestion and improve air quality by reducing the number of vehicles arriving at school. The Task Force works as a group with NPS and the city on any number of issues such as fixing safety issues, supporting crossing guards, resolving snow clearing problems, conducting bike and pedestrian safety training, etc. Working together SRTS is able to achieve more than individual schools.
Would you like to represent Bigelow at the Task Force?
The first SRTS meeting of the year will be at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 14. This would be a good time for someone to learn more about the program. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you re interested.
