Is your child taking the safest route to school?

To create the maps Safe Moves walked and biked every possible route to school.

From the City of Mountain View:

Getting more of our children to walk and bike to school improves child and community health, benefits the environment by reducing automobile emissions, and decreases traffic congestion around schools. 

To support these efforts, Safe Moves, in partnership with the City of MV and supported by a grant from VERBS  (Santa Clara County’s Vehicle Emissions Reductions Based at Schools program), created these Recommended Routes to School maps for the MV public schools and Los Altos High School. 

To create the maps Safe Moves walked and biked every possible route to school.

Please check your child’s recommended route to school and leave a comment with your suggestions for how to improve safety. 

When using the maps, note that green lines are recommended routes for walking or biking and orange lines are recommended routes for biking.

This post / communication is premature. I do not believe the City of Los Altos has approved any suggested routes for either LAHS Or MVHS students on Los Altos roads. The maps are currently a work in progress. For example, the MVHS map routed students living in the Country Club area the wrong way on a one way street (Fremont in Loyola Corners) to reach Oakhurst, where students were expected to make a left hand turn off of Fremont onto Oakhurst (an uncontrolled intersection) during morning commute times. I was under the impression that the City of MV was still soliciting input on the proposed routes - unless they choose to ignore comments from a LA commission that had hosted a public hearing on the routes.
