What is Safe Routes to School?
Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a movement that focuses on the implementation of programs aimed to increase the number of students commuting through active transportation modes (walking, biking, skating, public transportation) to reduce the number of vehicle trips associated with school travel. Program activities are based on what is known as the 5 E’s (Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, Engineering, and Evaluation) in an effort to improve traffic safety and air quality around schools while creating safe, convenient, and fun opportunities for children to be active on their way to/from school.Read more
