The Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools (SR2S) Program is excited to launch the third annual Creation for Transportation event with the new theme, Reboot Your Commute! Started in 2021, Creation for Transportation events offer engaging and fun ways for students to channel their creative expression and be thoughtful about the impact of their transportation choices. For this year’s event, high school students across Alameda County will host Reboot Your Commute events at their schools to encourage one another to use active and shared transportation throughout the winter from Wednesday, January 18 to Friday, March 17, 2023.
During these events, students will have the opportunity to share their transportation and travel stories through creative writing and drawing about their commute experiences.
“The Alameda County Transportation Commission is proud of our innovative efforts to reach our county’s youth through peer-led approaches. It’s a great accomplishment of the Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools (SR2S) Program to serve as a model to the nation in high school youth programming,” said SR2S Program Manager Denise Turner.
At the end of each school’s event day or series of events, a drawing will be held to select a winning student from each school who will receive a $50 Clipper Card. There is still time for interested schools to get involved and participate. For additional information, please visit the event webpage.
