BikeTexas is delighted to announce the return of the BikeTexas College Active Transportation Safety (CATS) program! CATS has been awarded a Traffic Safety grant from TxDOT for the 2013-2014 school year. This program teaches college students across Texas about bike laws and safe practices while riding or walking. Many students return to riding a bike for the first time in years when they start college, so the CATS program is there to make the transition to active transportation easier!
In 2012, the CATS pilot program reached over 3000 students at seven universities across Texas. With this new grant, BikeTexas plans to expand to seven additional universities to make sure even more young adults in Texas have the tools they need to ride and walk with safety and confidence.
