The Safe Routes to School National Partnership will host a free web seminar to address how student transportation departments can collaborate with Safe Routes to School to help children get to school safely.
The webinar, titled “Buses, Boots, and Bicycles: Getting Safe Routes to School and Student Transportation Departments to Work Together,” will be held on Thursday, July 17, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern.
