The Safe Routes to School National Partnership and Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) are partnering through the Los Angeles County Active Transportation Collaborative to compete for a LA2050 grant that will change the narrative about mobility in LA County and lift up the voices of people who walk, ride a bike, and take transit.
If awarded, the project will highlight how people across Los Angeles County are currently traveling and support a shared vision of not only regional success for mobility, but empathy and compassion for travel needs of all users—all ages, abilities and income levels. These stories can reframe the narrative on mobility in LA by Angelenos themselves, from their own experiences and hopes. By infusing important transportation policy conversations with real experiences from people throughout the region, particularly in traditionally underserved communities like Central, South and East LA, the Gateway Cities and San Gabriel Valley, we hope to unite diverse perspectives around common themes and galvanize support for a transportation system that improves safety and independence for all.

Voting is open from September 2nd through September 16th.
