Download an introductory presentationThe STA's Safe Routes to School (SR2S) Program is intended to improve the safety and increase the popularity of pedestrian and bicycle modes of student travel, by enhancing related infrastructure and programs.

Over the next year, STA will be coordinating an extensive SR2S public input process. This effort will gather input from local agencies, school districts, and the public through walking audits at schools. Local Safe Routes to School Plans will be adopted by each school district and city council. A countywide SR2S Plan will be adopted by the STA Board by December 2007.

The bicycle plan outlines a proposed bicycle system and prioritizes federal, state, and regional funding for those projects. It is hoped that each member jurisdiction of the STA will incorporate the plan's recommendations into their local planning policies.
