Safe Routes to School (SRTS)

Safe Routes to School (SRTS)

The Safe Routes To School (SRTS) program is part of a national (and international) movement to improve the health and well-being of children in grades K-8—including those with disabilities—by making it safe, convenient and fun to walk or bike to school every day.  

Benefits


Improve air quality and the environment – replacing car trips helps reduce fuel consumption, air pollution and asthma.

Creates safer routes for walking and bicycling – sidewalks, traffic calming measures and education programs are some ways to increase safety.

Enhances the health of kids – increased physical activity can combat obesity and diabetes, and improve learning.
