Safe Routes to School

Safe Routes to School Mecklenburg County Public Health logo with graphic of bike wheel and halmet and kids walking and bikingSafe Routes to School (SRTS) encourages communities to create opportunities for children to increase their daily physical activity by safely walking and biking to, from or at school!

Mecklenburg County is home to robust Safe Routes to School movements at the local level, with many schools holding regular walking and bicycling events. Our updated SRTS Mecklenburg County Partnership Program provides activities and resources focused on helping students, parents, teachers, staff, volunteers and the community increase the number of children walking or rolling to and from school. We work with partner schools to improve walking and bicycling conditions around schools, all while building healthy habits, safety skills and FUN!

Safe Routes to School initiatives use the Six Es in guiding programming:

1. Education
2. Encouragement
3.
Engagement
4.
Engineering
5. Evaluation

6. Equity

Learn more about the Six Es and national Safe Routes to School programming.


Walk and Bike to SchoolMecklenburg County's Safe Routes to School program participates in National Walk and Bike to School Day events throughout the year, where families, neighborhoods, and schools are all invited to take part. Activities might happen at at school, at home, or around the neighborhood. It's an opportunity for neighbors and the members of the community who care about walking to school to reinforce their commitments and work toward needed change.
