Safe Routes to Schools

The Alameda County SR2S program, started by Alameda CTC as a pilot program in 2007, promotes healthy habits by working with educators, parents and kids to increase walking, biking and carpooling to school. The program is funded by federal funds and local Measure B dollars.

SR2S is a comprehensive, proven approach to getting more kids walking and biking safely to school. It gives kids and parents skills, encouragement and inspiration through a range of activities, events and lessons, while addressing local pedestrian and personal safety concerns and traffic congestion.

The 2015-2016 school year was SR2S’ tenth year of promoting active transportation choices to students. The program has expanded annually and now reaches more than 160 schools throughout Alameda County, making this one of the largest in-depth Safe Routes to Schools programs in the nation. Read the Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools 2014-2015 Year-End Report for a comprehensive overview of the program.

Alameda County SR2S works with students, parents and schools throughout Alameda County to bring engaging and informative bicycle and pedestrian programming to their community.
