Community Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Training Program: Evaluation Report

After a young student was fatally struck by a car near a school, members of two nearby communities expressed outrage about the risk their children faced while traveling to school. Community leaders worked with UC Berkeley Safe Transportation Research and Education Center (SafeTREC) and California Walks (Cal Walks) to develop a plan to address the pedestrian and bicycle safety challenges in both communities and to strengthen working relationships among the school district, local childcare facilities and transportation safety stakeholders. Fifty members of the community, including parents and students from two schools, city mayors, and representatives from the school district, community organizations, and the county public works department convened to identify and plan solutions to the most urgent safety issues. This initial workshop led to the development of a comprehensive safety training program. SafeTREC and Cal Walks developed the Community Pedestrian Bicycle Safety Training (CPBST) program to train and mobilize communities to address pedestrian and bicycle safety and to strengthen collaboration with local officials and agency staff. This report provides a summary of the qualitative and quantitative methods used to evaluate the CPBST program, the findings of the evaluation, and lessons learned during the process, so that others can adapt this evaluation framework to suit their own programs.
