Pennsylvania Governor Corbett Announces Investments to Improve Students' Walking, Biking Safety

HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett announced today that seven Pennsylvania schools will improve walking and biking safety through PennDOT's distribution of more than $58,000 in federal Safe Routes to School Program funds.

"A multi-modal transportation system brings many health and environmental benefits to our communities," Corbett said. "We must teach children how to take advantage of these transportation options safely. These investments will lay the foundation for safe walking and biking habits through their entire lives."

The investments will help the schools develop educational programs, purchase equipment and establish other safety measures to ensure students who walk or bike to school can do so safely.

The PennDOT-administered program provides guidance and funding to help schools develop safe walking and biking solutions in their communities. Established through federal legislation in 2005, the program was created, in part, to help reverse a nationwide increase in childhood obesity. The program also benefits communities by helping to reduce fuel consumption, alleviate traffic congestion and improve air quality.

Since 2008, nearly $20 million in federal funds have been awarded to 144 Pennsylvania schools to improve bicycle and pedestrian facilities and enhance safety through education and encouragement strategies.

For more information on the program, visit PennDOT's Safe Routes to School Resource Center at www.SafeRoutesPA.org.
