ACTC Receives Grant for Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Education Program

The safety of people who use roadways to walk or ride their bike is the focus of a bicycle and pedestrian safety education program in partnership with the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC).

A $200,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) will fund a year-long program that addresses the safety of pedestrians and bicyclist near active roadway and rail crossings and includes a variety of educational activities like classroom presentations and community events aimed at teaching youth and adults about traffic rules, rights and responsibilities as pedestrians and bicyclists, and raises awareness about trespassing on active railroad rights-of-way.
