Safe Routes to School
    NATIONAL PARTNERSHIP




Safe Routes Networks:
building livable communities
for kids and everyone




Robert Ping
Technical Assistance Director
SRTS National Partnership
Why State Policy?




 Federal SRTS Funding is Critical,

  But It is Not Enough

 Policies Can Be Barriers

 Built Environment Needs Help

 Distance, Crime and Safety Issues
Why Regional Policy?




 Regional Governments (MPO’s) are powerful

 Large part of state population affected

 Very little advocacy at regional level

 Regions are more powerful in MAP-21
