Safe Routes to School Program

The purpose of the Safe Routes to Schools Program (SRTS) is to improve safety and mobility for children by enabling and encouraging them to walk and bicycle to school. Funding from this program is for projects within two-miles of primary, middle and high schools (K-12).

Since 2005, the program has awarded $135 million for 270 projects from over $499 million in requests.
