TMA Bucks will receive $65,000 to enhance traffic safety education throughout Bucks County in grades K-8 by offering free assemblies and events featuring guest speakers on bicycle safety, pedestrian safety, and distracted driving to schools.
The funding comes through the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside program.
TMA Bucks will administer these funds through its Community Traffic Safety Program.
The Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside provides funding for projects and activities defined as transportation alternatives, including on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure projects for improving non-driver access to public transportation and enhanced mobility, community improvement activities, and environmental mitigation, trails that serve a transportation purpose, and safe routes to school projects. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, enacted as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, continues to fund the TA Set-Aside through 2026.
TMA Bucks is a nonprofit transportation management association designed to promote and coordinate travel demand management strategies to reduce peak-hour traffic congestion and serve as a clearinghouse for transportation policies and programs throughout Bucks County. The TMA is membership supported and businesses can learn more about the benefits of membership attmabucks.com.
