Safe Routes to School at the Tomato Festival
The Solano Safe Routes to School program had a great time greeting parents and kids at our booth at the Fairfield Tomato Festival last weekend, August 20 and 21, 2016. We provided information about our free programs available to schools and asked parents how their children get to and from school (many by walking and biking!). Thanks to everyone who stopped by!

Vacaville Mayor Joins the Walking School Bus
The Callison Elementary School Walking School Bus had a special guest walk with them on the first day of school, August 18. Vacaville Mayor, Len Augustine, surprised the students, when he met them at Nelson Park and joined them and the Walking School Bus leaders as they walked the route down Marshall Road to the school located on Vanden Road. The route is one of three Walking School Bus routes available to students. For more information about Walking School Buses, call the SR2S program at 399-3222.

Despite a busy end of the school year, 28 Solano County schools participated in the 2016 Spring Travel Survey. The simple hand tally survey evaluates how students get to and from school. The survey results are extremely important to help our program be competitive for grant funding.
