Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is an initiative that enables schools, parents/caregivers and community leaders to encourage children to safely walk and bicycle to school through infrastructure improvements and educational programs. We are fortunate to have many community partners who are dedicated to this work.
Encouraging active modes of transportation can improve public health. When more people walk and bike communities experience safer streets, a stronger sense of community, reduced traffic demands, improved air quality and greater physical fitness. Both walking and cycling are good for your heart, your muscles, your bones, and are linked to improved mental health.
