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.

Bike Check for Spring

March 6th, 2023                                   Bike Check for Spring!

With more people itching to get outside to walk and bike, it’s a good time to review the rules to ensure everyone’s safety. Be sure to review the best routes to use and if biking, check the bike’s condition before you head out.    Video "ABC Bike Check"

  • Here are a few steps to remember:
  • Always wear your helmet
  • Ride in the same direction as traffic, not against traffic.
  • Be visible. Wear a bright jacket or add reflective material or blinking lights to increase visibility.
  • Stay alert and ride predictably, in a straight line.
  • If riding on the sidewalk or in a crosswalk, ride at walking speed and be prepared to walk your bike when it gets busy or at the request of crossing guards.
  • Be mindful of pedestrians and aware of traffic at all times.
  • Don’t assume that drivers see you – always watch for cars making turns or backing out of driveways.

Learn bicycle safety skills in a class or ask Safe Routes to School to give a lesson at your school!
