When it is safe to walk, bicycle, and take public transit to neighborhood schools, our children are healthier, our streets are safer for everyone, and our communities thrive. Safe routes to school create healthier kids who are ready to learn; kids equipped with crucial safety education; and safe neighborhood streets for all residents. In the coming months, Metro Council has an opportunity to make the lives of 150,000 of kids healthier and safer. I urge Metro to fund safe routes to school in every school district in the Metro Area.
