Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is all about creating safe, convenient, and fun opportunities for children to bicycle and walk to and from schools. This is important for the health and safety of our kids and to foster the creation of livable, vibrant communities. SRTS programs increase physical activity and improve unsafe walking and bicycling conditions on routes to and from school and throughout the community.
Thank you Washington County for this video!
Why is SRTS Needed?
Safe Routes to School are needed for the health and safety of our children! And when we provide opportunities for kids to be healthy and safe on their travels to and from school, the entire community will benefit. More reasons here.
