On January 12, 2022, Congressman Joe Neguse unveiled a bipartisan, bicameral measure to expand the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program, making it safer for all students to get to school and promoting both pedestrian and bicycle safety. The legislation directs the Department of Transportation to make federal support available for state and local projects designed to encourage high schoolers to walk or bike to school. As a result, the Act will incentivize physical activity and safety and deliver on much-needed infrastructure investments. For more information, go here.
