Safe Routes to School is District Wide!

Beginning this Fall, the San Francisco Unified srts collageSchool District (SFUSD) is implementing Safe Routes to School program district-wide. The SF Safe Routes to School Partnership is working together with SFUSD to support walking, bicycling, transit use and carpooling to and from school. We are also working with the Vision Zero Task Force to eliminate traffic-related deaths in San Francisco by 2024.

The services that will now be extended to all students through Safe Routes to Schools include:

  • Information about the 4 Fun Ways to Get to School: walking, bicycling, carpooling, and transit.
  • Access to events, including walking school bus/bike train workshops.
  • Participation in Walk and Roll to School Day on October 8, 2014.
  • Participation in Bike and Roll to School Week in late spring 2015.
  • Assistance with Free Muni for Youth registration for eligible students.
  • Updates about events and relevant news through the SRTS newsletter and central calendar.
  • A designated contact person to answer questions and provide information and assistance.
  • Access to Safe Routes to Schools curricula.

35 elementary schools will be invited to host Safe Routes to School events that are open to the public.  In exchange for providing this space to their community, these schools receive some additional support from the SRTS Partnership. For details and to demonstrate interest in becoming a host for Safe Routes to School, please complete the letter of interest form and submit to Martha Adriasola, (415) 242- 2618 (FAX). To be considered for this year, forms must be submitted by Monday, August 25th.

By expanding Safe Routes to Schools district-wide, we provide programming and assistance to all families and help to foster healthy, safe, and sustainable commuting in the SFUSD community. If you have any questions, please contact Martha Adriasola at adriasolam@sfusd.edu or (415) 242-2615 x3225.
