Safe Routes to School
Massachusetts Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a federally-funded initiative of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the sister program of MassRIDES. Safe Routes to School works with schools, communities, students, and families to increase biking and walking among elementary and middle school students in the Commonwealth. We promote a collaborative, community-focused approach that fosters partnerships between advocacy groups, law enforcement, education leaders, and public health departments.
Safe Routes to School is present in all 50 states and around the world, including Canada, Puerto Rico, Great Britain, and Europe. The Massachusetts Safe Routes to School Program distinguishes itself from other states’ efforts by providing a central source of services to all interested public elementary and middle schools through individual outreach and customizable program support.
