A tool for creating safe active transportation programs

How can school district policies support active transportation and safe routes to school for students and families?

When students can safely walk, ride bicycles, or use other forms of active transportation to get to and from school, their entire community gains health, economic, and environmental benefits. Making it easy for students to walk or bicycle to school requires action from many stakeholders — including schools, students and families, municipalities, businesses, planners, transportation engineers, and community groups.

ChangeLab Solutions collaborated with the Safe Routes Partnership to create the Safe Routes to School District Policy Workbook. This tool is designed to help school board members, administrators, families, and community members design and implement active transportation and Safe Routes to School programs. You can use this workbook to generate your own customized school district policy.
