Mam'k Walking School Buses a Model at County Conference

Larchmont resident Kim Larsen, who chairs the Larchmont and Mamaroneck Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Committee, was a featured speaker at the October 16, 2009 SRTC conference hosted by the Westchester County Department of Transportation at the County Center in White Plains.  Ms. Larsen presented Larchmont’s walking school bus program to well over 100 conference participants who included state, county and city transportation officials as well as school administrators from all over the Lower Hudson Valley.

“This month’s district-wide Walk to School Week featured numerous walking school buses at each of elementary school,” reported Ms. Larsen. “We’ve found that children really enjoy the sociability of the walking school bus.  It adds another layer of fun to the walk to school.” (See: Walk to School Week Stretches to Whole Year.)

“Larchmont has developed a fun and creative walking school bus program and we hope other communities will soon follow their lead,” commented Naomi Klein, principal planner for the Westchester County Department of Transportation and organizer of the conference.

Additional speakers included Westchester County Executive Andy Spano, Transportation Commissioner Lawrence Salley and County Health Commissioner Dr. Joshua Lipsman.

    It is estimated that 25% of morning ‘rush hour’ traffic is made up of parents driving children to school. (Did you see the back up at Boston Post Road and Weaver this morning?!)

    The ‘walking school bus’ is one of several Safe Routes to School techniques that can benefit our children and reduce traffic congestion and air pollution.

    Thank you Kim Larsen and your committee for your successful efforts ‘driving’ the walking school bus in our community.

    Oh my! This is a bit over the top. Safe Routes to School committees and chairpeople? What’s next, Safe Route conferences too?? Ooops! I see that already exists. My oh My. Why not let the dogs walk the kids to school? We need the exercise and something productive to do all day too, you know?

    Ruff, ruff!
