2011 Safe Routes to School Grants Awarded

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a federally-funded, national program to reduce congestion, improve safety and promote the health and well-being of children by enabling and encouraging them to walk and bicycle to school. With the support of parents, schools, community members and governments, the program evaluates school-area environments; conducts activities; and funds projects that improve safety and reduce traffic and air pollution in the surrounding community – making walking and bicycling to school a safer and more appealing transportation option.

The State Transportation Board determines policy and exercises general governance of Georgia’s Department of Transportation. The Board’s 13 members, representing each of the state’s congressional districts, serve staggered, five-year terms. Board members are elected by those state senators and representatives whose legislative districts fall within all or part of the relevant congressional district.
