Safe Route To School

About this Project

Welcome to the Massachusetts Safe Routes to School Program.

Massachusetts Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a federally-funded initiative of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT). Safe Routes to School works with schools, communities, students, and families to increase biking and walking among elementary and middle school students in the Commonwealth. We promote a collaborative, community-focused approach that fosters mutual partnerships between advocacy groups, law enforcement, education leaders, and public health departments that all work together to promote safer routes for elementary and middle school students to get to school.

Safe Routes to School is present in all 50 states and around the world, including Canada, Puerto Rico, Great Britain, and Europe. The Massachusetts Safe Routes to School Program distinguishes itself from other states’ efforts by providing a central source of services to all interested schools through individual outreach and customizable program support.

Safe Routes to School encourages elementary and middle school students to walk and bicycle to school safely by implementing the Safe Routes Five E’s:
