Protecting Mobility for All

Project Overview

In 2017-2018, Bellingham conducted the Travel with Care public safety campaign. In summer 2021, the Washington Traffic Safety Commission awarded Bellingham and multiagency funding partners a $120,000 grant to conduct a public safety campaign focused on people walking, biking, and rolling citywide, but especially near low-income neighborhood schools. Bellingham Police are partnering with Public Works, Whatcom Transportation Authority (WTA), Whatcom Council of Government Smart Trips, and School District staff to implement this public safety campaign beginning October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2023.
