Alta worked with the Seattle area’s King County Metro to develop a Toolkit of resources for member jurisdictions to implement Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) strategies at local schools.
Alta developed a style guide and outreach collateral materials including a SRTS brochure, banner, editable poster, tips sheets for safe walking, biking, carpooling, and driving in the school area. The Toolkit includes a Community Coalition Guidebook that provides guidelines for assembling key stakeholders, planning, and implementing CTR activities at schools.
Alta is currently testing the Toolkit with three communities, including the City of Kirkland, through the SchoolPool project. Alta has worked closely with partner cities, districts, and schools to implement successful walk and bike to school events, provide training to PTAs, and expand partnerships with other ongoing programs, such as Green Schools.
