Safe Routes to School:

  • provides safe route mapping for neighborhood families
  • sponsors bike education and group rides
  • offers bicycle repair to keep kids on the move
  • works with schools to develop a calendar of walk and bike events and incentives

Safe Routes to School helps kids and parents discover that walking and biking can be a fun and healthy part of every day!

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs encourage daily physical activity and the development of healthy habits in youth by promoting regular walking and biking to school. Walking and biking also reduces traffic congestion and pollution around schools, improves safety in school zones, and provides families and friends an opportunity to share time with each other and build connections in their community.

Events

School specific activities are organized for targeted schools throughout the school year, and public walk/bike events are available to ALL elementary and middle school children in the region. The first of several region-wide event of the 2016-2017 school year is the WALKtober Walk to School Challenge on Oct. 24-28.

Check them out!

 

Focus Schools

In the first two years of programing, six schools have been selected to receive focused and comprehensive Safe Routes to School Tucson support.  These focus schools are Blenman Elementary, Howell Elementary, Kellond Elementary, Laguna Elementary, Los Amigos Technology Academy, and Pueblo Gardens PreK-8.
