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.

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.

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

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