Safe Routes to School

Beaverton Safe Routes to School Logo

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!

April 7th, 2021                                     Celebrate Earth Day April 22nd!
Walking and rolling is good for the earth! April is the month we celebrate Earth Day and one way you can help our planet and combat climate change is to replace car trips with active ones! 2 miles of driving = 1.6 lbs of carbon emissions. Think about local car trips that your family takes often. Maybe it is a trip to the park or a friend’s house. Map your route and try walking or biking instead. We often think places are farther than they seem. Give yourself plenty of time to get to your location and be amazed at what your body can do for you!
