The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program empowers communities to make walking and bicycling to school a safe and routine activity once again.The Georgia Safe Routes to School Resource Center, a program of the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), provides K-8 schools with tools and assistance to build a successful Safe Routes to School Program.
The Resource Center provides schools with the tools needed to start, grow, and sustain meaningful SRTS programs. The Resource Center is a one-stop shop for schools to find out about SRTS, get practical advice and information on training and funding opportunities, and learn about available resources in their region to help make walking and biking popular choices for kids traveling to and from school.
The Georgia Safe Routes to School Resource Center partners with Georgia SHAPE to promote students safely walking and biking to school, which a great and fun way to include physical activity in their daily routine. Walking a mile takes just twenty minutes and is a great way to get part of the sixty minutes of daily physical activity recommended as part of a healthy lifestyle!
