Safe Routes to School Program (SRTS)

The  Safe  Routes to School Program (SRTS) is a federally funded program that was initiated by the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act.
County and municipal governments, school districts, schools and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply to the program.

The Federal-aid SRTS program provides federal-aid highway funds to State Departments of Transportation.
The main objectives of the program are:

  • to enable and encourage children in grades K-8, including those with disabilities, to walk and bicycle to school;
  • to make bicycling and walking to school a safer and more appealing transportation alternative, thereby encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age; and
  • to facilitate the planning, development,  and implementation of projects and activities that will improve safety and reduce traffic, fuel consumption and air pollution in the vicinity of schools.

County and municipal governments, school districts, schools, and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply to the program.
