NHDOT invites all elementary and middle schools (public, parochial and private) and their communities to participate in SRTS. John Corrigan, the coordinator, will travel to meet with local leaders, explain the program, answer any questions, and initiate a discussion about local conditions.
A helpful first step is to complete and submit the "preliminary school survey form" found on the "getting started" page.
Reimbursement funding for local projects is authorized under the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). New Hampshire is scheduled to receive $1 million per year for each of five years. About $1.5 million has been awarded, leaving a balance of approximately $3.5 million.
The NHDOT’s SRTS coordinator is ready to provide advice on getting task forces organized and help local participants find ways to increase walking and bicycling. The department also wants to learn from the successes and failures of local efforts and spread the word to more and more communities.
