School Trip Planning Project Launched at Catholic Elementary School in Peterborough - Global News

Peterborough GreenUp has launched a new project aimed at eliminating congestion in school zones and increasing active traffic.

The School Planning Project – along with the city of Peterborough and the Peterborough district – was officially launched on Thursday at the Catholic Elementary School of the Immaculate Conception. The goal is for more children to go to school and ride a bike.

Clifford Maynes, executive director of Green Communities Canada, says the goal is to work with partners to take active school travel to the next level. Peterborough School's travel planning project is financially supported by Green Communities Canada and the Ontario government. Other partners include the Crossing Guards of Peterborough and the Clarborough Catholic District School Board of Peterborough Victoria Northumberland.

"We look forward to working with GreenUP on this project," he said.
