Posted on February 4, 2019 at 4:39 pm by Peter Ibrahim

Save the date! The City is creating a Citywide Safe Routes to School program and is hosting a fun and interactive event to help educate residents. Join us Sunday, March 24, from 1-4 p.m. at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center (Sequoia Room/Patio), 700 Alma Street. 

The event will offer both fun and informational opportunities such as: 
  • A free mobile bike repair station
  • Bike blender to make free smoothies
  • Bike helmet fittings
  • Opportunity to give feedback for the Menlo Park Safe Routes to School program
  • Representatives from Parents for Safe Routes, San Mateo County Health System, San Mateo County Office of Education, SamTrans, and more on hand to answer questions

Goals of this program include:
  • Getting children to school safely by promoting biking and walking
  • Developing a comprehensive curriculum to instill basic safety skills at an elementary school age
  • Offering resources for both public and private schools to help promote alternatives for getting children to school other than driving
For the most up-to-date information, visit the Safe Routes to School program webpage. Questions or feedback can be sent to the City's Transportation Demand Management Coordinator Nicholas Yee.
