Across Alameda County, students are preparing to lead “Reboot Your Commute,” two months of fun and engaging events supported by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) that inspire fellow classmates to be creative and thoughtful about the impact of their transportation choices. Presented by the Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools (SR2S) Program, Reboot Your Commute events will take place at participating Alameda County high schools between Monday, January 29 and Friday, March 29, 2024.
Reboot Your Commute encourages high school students to walk, roll (e.g., bike, skate, scoot, use wheelchairs, and other mobility devices), carpool, and take transit to school. During these events, students share their transportation and travel stories through drawing and creative writing to foster a schoolwide conversation about how travel modes impact their community, environment, health, and well-being. Events are organized by SR2S Youth Task Force members, with assistance from Alameda County SR2S staff. The SR2S Youth Task Force brings together high school student representatives quarterly to arrange events, build community, and support sustainable transportation solutions at schools across Alameda County. Visit the Reboot Your Commute event webpage for more information. Student leaders and their schools can express interest in getting involved by submitting a registration form.
