Sris

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs are sustained efforts by parents, schools, community leaders and local, state, and federal government to improve the health and well-being of children by enabling and encouraging them to walk and bicycle to school. 

SRTS programs examine conditions around schools and conduct projects and activities that work to improve safety and accessibility, and reduce traffic and air pollution in the vicinity of schools. As a result, these programs help make  cycling and walking to school safer and more appealing transportation choices thus encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age. 

 

SRTS resources & activities help communities 

  • build sidewalks, bicycle paths and pedistrian-friendly infrastructure

  • reduce speeds in schools zones and neighborhoods

  • address distracted driving among drivers of all ages

  • educate generations on pedestrian and bicycle safety
