Safe Routes to School

About Safe Routes to School (SRTS)

Safe Routes to School is an effort to improve walking and bicycling conditions for youth and to encourage more active lifestyles. SRTS programs improve safety, reduce traffic and improve air quality near schools through a multidisciplinary approach that is structured around the 6 E’s.


Prioritizing positive outcomes for students from lower-income households; Black, Indigenous, and other students of color; students with disabilities; and other students who face disproportionate barriers to walking, biking, and rolling to school.


Working with students, families, school staff, and community members and organizations, especially those from priority Equity groups, to create and implement Safe Routes to School initiatives.


Developing Equity-focused changes to the built environment, designed and prioritized through community engagement.


Providing students and other community members, especially those from priority Equity groups, with skills and knowledge about walking, biking, and rolling.


Normalizing a culture of walking, biking, and rolling through incentive programs, events, and activities that center on priority Equity groups.


Measuring how Safe Routes to School initiatives are implemented (process evaluation) and what their impacts are (outcome evaluation), especially how initiatives Engage with and support priority Equity groups.
