Safe Routes to School

The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program is a national program that promotes walking and biking to school. The SRTS focuses on teaching bicycle and pedestrian safety along with the promotion of healthy lifestyles. The initiative encourages children to walk and bike to school and also seeks to improve the air quality around schools, reducing traffic congestion near schools, increase physical activity of children, and increase community involvement.
