This summer, join, Go Human -- SCAG’s award-winning traffic safety and active transportation encouragement program -- as we will be hosting 15 bicycle rodeos and safety programming booths for kids in Los Angeles County and Orange County. Bike rodeos, or bicycle skills workshops for kids, provide opportunities to learn safety tips, build bicycling skills and increase kids’ confidence on a bike. League Certified Instructors will teach helmet fitting, ABC Quick Checks, how to cross the street safely, bike handling skills, yielding and more. Through games, like Find the Hazard and Spinner trivia, as well as bicycle courses, kids experience hands-on learning and education (with friendly support from safety costume characters).

Southern California Association of Governments is now accepting applications for new planning and non-infrastructure proposals to receive funding from the Regional Active Transportation Program (ATP). The program received additional funding as a result of the adoption of Senate Bill 1 (SB1), providing a unique opportunity for agencies that were not awarded funds in preceding ATP cycles to implement capacity building projects or participate in the region’s successful Go Human campaign.

Deadline to apply is August 31, 2017. For guidelines, project examples and application forms please visit: http://sustain.scag.ca.gov

SCAG’s Regional Council today adopted the 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment #2 and the 2017 FTIP Consistency Amendment #17-07, including the associated transportation conformity determination. This update to the 2016 RTP/SCS was initiated as a result of the passage of Measure M, the Los Angeles County sales tax measure approved by voters in November 2016. The majority of changes in the amendment include updates to projects as a result of the extended funding, as well as several new transportation improvements. The 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment #2 will be submitted to FHWA/FTA for their approval. For more information, visit our 2016 RTP/SCS website.
