Mission Statement

Where it's safe, get children walking and biking. Where it's not safe, make changes.

Description

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a program that encourages families to use alternative modes of transportation, such as walking, riding a bike/scooter, or rollerblading when going to school. Exercise and safety are key components of the program.

40 years ago, roughly half of all 5 to 18 year olds walked or biked to school. Today, nearly 90% are driven by vehicle or bus. Loveland's SRTS Program hopes to change these statistics locally.

With more students walking or bicycling to school, traffic congestion around school zones will decrease, creating safer school zones. Students will become more active, leading to healthier habits.
