School Walkability
Kids Are Commuters Too!

Targeted investments in walk to school programs in our region could greatly reduce auto commutes and associated greenhouse gas emissions, while improving kids’ health. Thousands of schools across the country have initiatives that encourage students and their parents to choose walking, biking, and other non-auto modes for commutes to and from school. Often called Safe Routes to School (SRTS), these programs generally seek to achieve a variety of objectives: health benefits of active transportation for students, air quality improvements, and reduced congestion.
