Safe Routes to School

The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program is a nationwide effort to increase walking, biking, & rolling to school for parents and children from elementary through high school.  The SRTS approach encompasses infrastructure improvements, safety education, enforcement, incentives, and community programming to reduce car trips and promote active transportation.  

Ways to get involved:

Attend an event at your school – see key dates below.

Connect to Medford parents & advocates who are leading this work. Email if you would like to help out or learn more.

Spread the word to others in your school, PTO, & neighborhood who might be interested.
