Ensuring Safe & Healthy School Travel During COVID-19
August 13, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
School reopening is the big topic right now: how to do it safely, effectively, and efficiently. New requirements for health checks, physical distancing, and reduced bus capacity are likely to create bottlenecks, congestion, and lost instructional time at pick-up and drop-off.
Local Motion, with support from VTrans and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, is excited to offer a webinar to help school communities discover how these challenges can be ameliorated by encouraging walking and biking.
Presenter Mark Fenton, who is a nationally recognized expert on the intersection of walking, transportation, and public health in the U.S., will offer critical insights and recommendations for your fall back-to-school transportation planning, including:
– Proven strategies to encourage walking and bicycling
– Low-cost demonstration and quick-build techniques to accommodate increased pedestrian and bicycle demand
– Tips on utilizing free Local Motion and VTrans resources and technical assistance to improve routes to school
