We’re starting with Dr. EP Scarlett, in the Southwest community of Canyon Meadows as our Pilot Project because parents and administration are supportive. They see the opportunity – an opportunity to reduce vehicle congestion, improve student health and well being, and build the school community by getting kids on bikes and out of cars.
A recent bike audit found less than 10 bikes in the old, decrepit bike rack, for a school of 1,500 students. There’s an opportunity because the express buses from Lake Bonavista and Evergreen are crowded and don’t give students any flexibility for extra-curricular activities or even homework help.
The pilot is starting now, with students being asked to fill in a survey. Watch here for results and project updates.
