Safe Routes to School

What is Safe Routes to School (SR2S)?

SR2S programs enable community leaders, schools and parents across the United States to improve safety and encourage more children to safely walk and bicycle to school. Programs also work to reduce traffic congestion and improve health and the environment, making livable communities for everyone. - National Center for SR2S

SR2S is a nationwide movement to encourage K-12 students to walk or roll to school. The program supports this goal by involving stakeholders (from kids and parents to city planners and law enforcement) in addressing infrastructure and safety concerns, and providing training and support to school teachers, staff, kids, and parents.
