Georgia SRTS Basics

Safe Routes to School programs are sustained efforts by parents, schools, community leaders and local, state, and federal governments to improve the health and well-being of children by enabling and encouraging them to walk and bicycle to school. Safe Routes to School programs connect transportation options with public health needs with the quality of our environment with the livability of our communities.

SRTS programs examine conditions around schools and conduct projects and activities that work to improve safety and reduce traffic and air pollution in the vicinity of schools. As a result of these efforts, SRTS programs make bicycling and walking to school safer and more appealing transportation choices. They also encourage children to pursue healthier and more active lifestyles throughout their lives.
