Safe Routes to School Tucson (SRTS) aims to make it easier, safer, and more fun for K-8 youth to walk and bike to (and from) school. As a program of Living Streets Alliance, we believe that children and their families deserve to have safe streets to walk, bike, and play.
We offer the following:
- “Riders & Walkers”: Interactive presentations for 3rd graders across Pima County to get them excited to walk and bike.
- Mobile Bike Repair: Hands-on bicycle maintenance, repair, and education clinics hosted at schools and community centers.
- Tailored activities like school travel planning, walking school bus coordination, and after-school bike clubs with select school communities.
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.
Currently, there are two focus schools – Los Amigos Technology Academy and Pueblo Gardens PreK-8 – which receive focused and comprehensive Safe Routes to School Tucson support.
