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 students to walk and roll (skateboard, bike, scooter and bus) to and from school. This is important for the health and safety of our kids and to foster the creation of livable, vibrant communities. The SRTS program aims to increases physical activity and improve unsafe walking and bicycling conditions. Find more information about who we are, what we do and why we do it!
Please contact SRTS for any support or questions.
July 17th, 2023 Family Geo-Caching Treasure Hunt!
Getting kids motivated to explore the outdoors can be challenging. That's why Safe Routes to School created the Family Geocaching Treasure Hunt! Enjoy the Tualatin Hills Nature Park as you search for the 8 caches hidden along the trails. Once you have found the cache, open it to see the exciting treasure inside! Each person can make an entry in the log book, share a photo of one of our mini gnomes living their best life, and snag a free prize to take home. The hunt begins July 3rd and will run through August 25th. Have a safe and fun summer! Create a free account below to get started!

June 26th, 2023 Anti-idling Campaign at Fir Grove!
The Green Team at Fir Grove Elementary took a stand against car idling with a student-led anti-idle campaign. Before deciding to take on this issue, the students met with a Safe Routes to School team member and learned about the science behind global warming as well as the negative impacts of idling.
If your schools' Green Team would like to do a similar project in the fall, let us know and we will schedule a visit to your school next year!
June 19th, 2023 New Wayfinder signs!
We have embarked on a wayfinding sign project, funded with a grant from ODOT, to enhance navigation and safety for pedestrians around Elmonica, Hazeldale, and Kinnaman elementary schools. These newly installed signs serve as clear markers along the walk routes, providing important information and improved the neighborhoods' navigability for students and the community.
Beaverton's Safe Routes to School Program is possible with support from Metro, Oregon Department of Transportation and City of Beaverton. Thank you!
