The Maine Walking School Bus Program Awards 3 New Schools!
The Maine Walking School Bus (WSB) Program – a partnership of the Maine Center for Disease Control, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine and the Maine Department of Transportation – is excited to announce that Vine Street (Bangor), Abraham Lincoln (Bangor), and Farwell (Lewiston) elementary schools have been selected to receive grants for the 2017/18 school years! Congratulations!!
The WSB Program provides local schools with the opportunity to start or build on their own daily walking school bus programs, with technical and financial assistance from the statewide program. The funding supports a WSB Coordinator within the school, safety equipment, marketing materials and ongoing guidance from program staff.
Vine Street, Abraham Lincoln, and Farwell will join five other schools across the state of Maine that are already running WSB Programs: Portland’s East End Community School, Norway’s Guy E. Rowe School, Ellsworth’s Elementary-Middle School, Waterville’s Albert S. Hall School, and Bangor’s Downeast School.
