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. Find more information about who we are, what we do and why we do it!
Please Contact SRTS for any support, questions or to sign up for our Monthly Newsletter!
Choose from the following options to learn more about Beaverton Safe Routes to School.
SEPTEMBER 14TH, 2022 PARK AND WALK
Park + Walk is simple: drive to a park or other safe location near school and then walk the rest of the way!
Park + Walk is for families who don’t feel comfortable walking or biking the whole way to school. This may be due to distance or other hazard along the route.
Why Park + Walk to school?
- Be part of the solution – fewer cars around schools makes it safer for everyone.
- Reduce your carbon footprint and limit unhealthy pollutants.
- Squeeze in some extra steps with a quick walk.
- Save money by driving less.
Ask your school if they have a Park + Walk location, if not, contact us and we’ll help you set one up.
SEPTERMBER 7TH, 2022 EVERY INTERSECTION IS A CROSSWALK!
Our students are struggling to get cars to stop for them while trying to cross at intersections. Oregon law requires motorists to stop for pedestrians at every street corner, even if no visible crosswalk markings are showing. The safety of our students depends on you. Please follow traffic laws and be extra alert for our student pedestrians. #BSDtogether #BSDsaferoutes #saferoutestoschool #walkandrolltoschool #oregonsaferoutes
