Free education and skills program offered to road users
CoMo Vision Zero, a collaboration of city officials and other transportation advocates working together to create safe streets for everyone, is offering a free road-user safety training this summer to income-eligible applicants. This program will help road users travel safely around Columbia while biking or driving.
Accepted applicants will participate in a professionally guided bike education class and up to six one-hour driving instruction courses offered by a local certified driving instructor. Upon successful completion of the Vision Zero Smart Road User Program, participants will receive a certificate of completion and may qualify for a voucher for a free bicycle.
Part I of the program will include classroom instruction, bike handling skills, and on-road rides to build confidence and skills in navigating the City on two wheels. Courses are scheduled for June 22nd.
Part II of the program will be done in-car and may include beginner driver lessons or subject-specific driving lessons. Participation in the Smart Road User Program is free for income-eligible applicants. Complete the registration form at CoMoVisionZero.org by June 1st.
