Safe Routes to School

The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program combines engineering tools and engagement with education about safety and activities to encourage students to take active modes of transportation to school, such as walking, biking, skating, or scootering..


Implementing a SRTS Plan has a long list of benefits, including improved safety, increased access, encouraged physical activity, and reduced traffic congestion and motor vehicle emissions near schools. Adjacent neighborhoods also benefit by reducing traffic conflicts and enabling walking and rolling trips for all purposes.
