We partner with government agencies, private foundations, local non-profits and others to identify priorities and possible funding sources to implement bike and pedestrian programs to make your community safer and healthier. Our services are available at no cost to you.
Walking and bicycling are easy and simple ways to make physical activity a part of your daily routine. We can help you plan, develop, and implement activities in your school or community to improve safety and promote walking and bicycling.
So what makes us different?
We offer a range of bike and walk programs and services for the young and the old and prioritize underserved communities and those with high rates of pedestrian crashes and fatalities to make them safer.
In disadvantaged communities, we help improve a community’s health by encouraging biking and walking, better lighting, safer streets, and reduced air pollution.
What do we offer?
We can come to your site and conduct 30-minute visual, age-appropriate, and interactive presentations about safety rules and benefits of walking or biking.
We could also set up an on-bike skills course to teach bicyclists about starting, stopping, scanning, signaling, turning, and riding in traffic. A limited number of free helmets are available for youth who do not have one.
Our online Safety Presentations & Worksheets could help you learn from home.
We help schools and municipalities to assess the physical condition of the routes used to walk or bike and develop travel plans to improve the walking and bicycling experience. These plans can help you apply for SRTS Grants for Infrastructure Improvements or Transportation Improvements Set-Aside Program Grants from the New Jersey Department of Transportation. (NJDOT).
Our School Travel Toolkit provides a wealth of information for teachers and parents about commuting safely to school – walking, bicycling, riding a scooter, taking the bus, or driving in your car. And our School Activity Learning Guide for school teachers offers new online presentations and activities, including E-Bike Safety, E-Scooter Safety, and Ten Easy Ways to Help the Environment for Science or Health classes.
In partnership with NJ Transit, we manage enclosed bike lockers at seven train stations that can be rented for a nominal amount by commuters using public transit. The lockers are designed to protect bikes from weather, theft or damage in addition to eliminating the cost and hassle of parking.
Every year, we host a recognition event to celebrate the efforts of schools and municipalities who promote safe walking and biking. The awardees earn points towards grants provided by NJDOT and Sustainable Jersey.
