About Community Schools and Transportation

In 2013, the Regional Transportation Council adopted a Policy Supporting School Districts, encouraging participation in activities and programs such as the Clean School Bus Program, school siting coordination, and programs that advance the safety of children traveling to and from school.


In 2014 the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded a Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant to NCTCOG to promote connections and transportation agencies. As part of the grant, NCTCOG created the Regional School Coordination Task Force to help establish a structured dialogue and formalized partnership among these entities, in order to:


    • Advance long-term planning for school siting
    • Improve multimodal transportation options to schools
    • Improve transportation safety near schools
    • Improve coordination between related but traditionally separate entities to advance resource efficiency and sustainability

Please visit this website for more information on meeting dates and resources from this project as they become available.
