Vienna Safe Routes to School challenge a success

The Safe Routes to School challenge in Vienna appears to have been a great success. At the four participating elementary schools there were 2823 trips taken on foot or bike; Wolftrap - 864, Louise Archer - 561, Vienna - 622, and Marshall Road - 776. Of those trips, 254 were by bike (Wolftrap - 107, Louise Archer - 46, Vienna - 101, and Marshall Road - 0).

Instead of sitting an a motor vehicle that generates greenhouse gases and burns fossil fuels, these kids are getting exercise and learning that there are other ways to get to around. I'll bet that had fun too. Congratulations to the kids and parents at these schools. Let's hope that Fairfax County supports their efforts to make their community more walkable and bikeable.
