Thirty years ago, most children commuted to and from school by bus. Fortunately, help is on the way in the form of the "Safe Routes to Schools" program initiated nationwide and funded in Santa Clara County by the VTA and in San Mateo County by C/CAG. There are so many great alternatives to one child commuting in one car to and from school each day.
There is a wealth of information at www.smcoe.k12.ca.us in San Mateo County or www.sccgov.org in Santa Clara County in the "Safe Routes to Schools" section. This provides promising avenues to promoting a healthier community for everyone.
