How Does Georgia's Program Work?

Georgia's Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program is designed to encourage more kids to walk and bike to school safely. Safe Routes to School Program is organized around six ideas – also called the 6 Es:

  • Encouragement: Encouraging kids to walk and bike
  • Education: Teaching kids and parents safe ways to walk and bike
  • Evaluation: Checking to see how many kids are walking and biking as a result of the program
  • Enforcement: Changing driver, walker and bicyclist behavior as they travel together along the road
  • Engineering: Planning and making the environment safer for walking and bicycling
  • Equity: Working to make safe routes accessible to all demographics and abilities

Schools and community organizations may partner with the Resource Center to access Safe Routes to School resources and services. The Partnership Program details are found under the Partnership tab above.
