The second half of the 2023/2024 legislative biennium is upon us, and we're excited to return to the Statehouse and advocate for better walking, biking, and rolling in Vermont. Here's what we're focused on this year.
Local Motion is excited to announce the addition of over 170 business locations and two new Burlington bike routes to our Interactive Biking and Walking Map. The “ONE Love Loop” and the Pine Street “Arts & Craft Loop” are now waiting to be discovered via the Interactive Map. The map can help you know where to go and find local parks, beaches, restaurants and bars, hotels, shops, and public restrooms.
It’s the start of a new school year, and we’re finally seeing things returning to normal. Schools are getting excited about getting kids active and are using Safe Routes to School (SRTS) to solve the School Drop-Off Dilemma.
We have 65 SRTS school and educational partners engaging in the work! Every year, these schools run fun events encouraging active transportation, like this fun walk to school day event at Twinfield Elementary pictured below.
Local Motion staff worked with our partner organizations at Transportation for Vermonters to make progress on several key legislative issues.
