The City of Jacksonville is committed to making active transportation to and from schools safer for all students in grades K-12, including those with special needs. Safe Routes to School (SRTS) projects and programs are intended to increase the number of students that commute to school by foot, wheelchair, or bicycle, by eliminating infrastructure barriers and improving the overall safety. Benefits of SRTS efforts include improved student health, less traffic congestion, reduced crashes for vulnerable roadway users, and improved air quality in the vicinity of schools.
The City’s SRTS web page will be updated regularly to share SRTS plans and reports, training resources, upcoming events, educational materials, and more!
