Emerson School Awarded Safe Routes Mini-Grant!

The Emerson School, a K-5 charter school in downtown Portland, is one of 25 schools nationally to receive a $1000 minigrant from the National Center for Safe Routes to Schools to advance their walking and biking efforts.  With these funds, Emerson is establishing a weekly walking school bus, and is expanding their bike train program to include bike trains from Northeast, Southeast, North, and Southwest Portland neighborhoods. 

The grant will also help the school est
ablish “Emerson TriMet Trekkers”, public transit groups from different neighborhoods. One or more adults will chaperon a group of students to school from a convenient public transit stop in their respective neighborhoods, via walking, city bus, light rail, and/or streetcar.  Grant funds will be used to purchase transit tickets for participating students, and to increase the visibility and safety of students in the walking school bus and bike trains. 

 

Congratulations, Emerson!
