Metro announced $533,000 in Regional Travel Options grants today. According to Metro, the federally-funded grants are given to projects that "reduce the number of people driving alone to improve air quality and address community health issues."
Grant winners this cycle include a wide range of projects — from bike parking to "transportation mobility counseling." One award that catches my eye is $53,000 for Sunday Parkways out in Wilsonville.
