Safe Routes to School
Walk, Bike, Bus... It's the Way to Go!
The Beaverton Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program is all about creating safe, convenient, and fun opportunities for youth to walk and roll (skateboard, bike, scooter and bus) to and from schools. This is important for the health and safety of our kids and to foster the creation of livable, vibrant communities. SRTS programs increase physical activity and improve unsafe walking and bicycling conditions on routes to and from school and throughout the community.
Please Contact SRTS for any support, questions or to sign up for our Monthly Newsletter!

May 21st 2021 Spring Family Event for Vose Elementary
So happy to be back in-person this month! Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation hosted this Spring Family event for the Vose Elementary School community. We were able to fit over 30 students with needed helmets and provide safety tips and encouragement for walking and rolling. Kids were also able to take a spin on our Bike Wheel to answer a safety quiz question and a prize pick for participating. #BSDtogether #BSDsaferoutes #voseelementary #saferoutestoschool #walkandroll
May 14th, 2021 Annual Fir Grove Bike Rodeo
The Annual Fir Grove Bike Rodeo was a huge success! Thank you to PE teacher Mrs. Villegas, Beaverton Bike Advisory Committee and Trek Bicycle Beaverton for helping us make this happen. Fifty families were able to register for timed entry to learn about bike safety, practice bike skills and get their wheels tuned up and ready for summer riding. Contact us if your school is interested in hosting a bike rodeo for the 2021/2022 school year - we would love to help! #BSDtogether #BSDsaferoutes #bikerodeo #firgroveelementary #saferoutestoschool
May 3rd, 2021 Beaverton Safe Routes to School Parent Surveys
It’s data collection time again for Beaverton’s Safe Routes to School program. The purpose of the program is to make walking and rolling to school safe, convenient, and fun. We need parent’s and guardian’s input into how students travel to and from schools and their impression of the safety of the route is valuable as the city and county prioritize needed improvements for our roads.The following link was generated from the National Safe Routes to School Center and will be combined with classroom tallies to give us a good picture of how students are getting to and from schools throughout the district.The parents survey will be open for responses for three weeks starting May 1st. If you have not received your survey, please contact your school for the school specific link.
We appreciate your help in giving us information to make our program effective for all Beaverton School District students.
