Safe Commutes, Green Communities
Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a national program that promotes walking and biking to school safely, while using education and incentives to show how much fun it can be!
Programs are designed to decrease traffic and pollution and increase
the health of children and the community. SRTS addresses parents’ safety
concerns by educating children and the public, partnering with traffic
law enforcement, and developing plans to create safer streets.
Our local SRTS program, known as Farmington Walk and Roll, embraces the
fact that walking and biking to school has many benefits, especially
for our children, including:
Giving children a sense of freedom and responsibility
Allowing children to enjoy fresh air
Providing opportunities for children to get to know their neighborhoods
All while arriving at school alert, refreshed and ready to start their day
