About Sustainable Schools

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 the NCTCOG a Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant to promote connections and coordination between schools, local governments, and transportation agencies. The project will focus on the creation of a Regional Working Group 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.
