The program funds projects through a competitive grant process that increase pedestrian and bicycle safety to, from and near schools in North County and expand and improve the North County’s regional bicycle and pedestrian facilities network.  Cities and the County are eligible to compete for funding.  Projects proposed by cities and the County may include projects to be coordinated in partnership with school districts, universities, colleges, transit agencies and Caltrans.

Funds will be used for planning, project development, and construction of capital projects, education programs and maintenance.  Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, wider shoulders and sidewalks near schools, crosswalk signals and school zone signage, traffic calming near schools, pedestrian and bicycle safety education for students, new bike routes and pedestrian paths to eliminate missing links in the regional network, path lighting, route plans and maps.
