Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a comprehensive program based on a simple premise: our kids should be able to safely walk and bike to school. Walking and biking to school helps students develop independence, improves academic performance, helps reduce traffic congestion and air pollution, and helps create a stronger community.

Vermont Safe Routes to School has been part of the VTrans Bicycle and Pedestrian Program for almost a decade.

Since that time, Local Motion has served as statewide SRTS coordinator.  Our role is as follows:

  • Confirming progress through the levels of the program
  • Answering questions from school "champions"
  • Providing guidance to partner schools
  • Sending out newsletters about upcoming events and opportunities
  • Providing support with activities and events
  • Helping create and update School Travel Plans
