Safe Routes in the House (of Representatives)

Safe Routes to School gets children active

The bill that will keep the Colorado Safe Routes to School program alive goes to its first committee hearing on March 19, when Representative Diane Mitch Bush presents the bill to the State House Transportation Committee.

Success for this bill is critical as it supports the primary child safety program in Colorado for students walking and biking to school. After ten years of improved safety and activity levels in schools and communities that receive the safe routes program, this bill is really the last hope for the statewide program.

Visit the Safe Routes to School Act page

The value of safe routes to school being statewide is that successes and improvements learned in one school can be shared with other schools. Plus the program brings together multiple agencies and organizations to work together with a focus on students’ health and safety. It is wonderful to see parent groups, health leaders, teachers, law enforcement and local businesses working together to make it easier for students to bike and walk in their neighborhoods.

  • Glad to see the bicycle repair station at Wash Park getting put to good use (even if we never like to see a fellow bicyclist in need)! Thanks for putting these up, @denverparksrec—you helped him get home safe!
