Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a program created by the federal transportation bill, SAFETEA-LU. The program’s goal is to increase the number of children in grades K-8 who bicycle and walk to school by increasing awareness, developing locally-driven and supported programs, improving bicycling and walking conditions near the qualifying schools and evaluating at the project and program levels. In addition to federal funding, local governments and non-profit and advocacy organizations support Safe Routes to School efforts.
