Parents & Students
Research shows that exercise, including walking and biking, helps kids with brain development and long-term health. Of course, Safe Routes to School programs also offer plenty of other benefits to your school and community!
Organize a Walking School Bus, organize events during Walk or Bike to School Day, and learn safety tips.
Every successful Safe Routes to School program has strong parent champions: those who recognize the benefits of Safe Routes to School and are willing to take the necessary steps to create a more walkable and bikeable school community.
Getting interested and involved in how you and other students at your school get to school is a great way to get involved in an issue that affects your life directly.
