Safe Routes to School


Safe Routes to SchoolIn 1969, roughly 48% of students bicycled or walked to school. Today only 13% of children do so and travel to school can account for up to 25% of all morning traffic.

Greenfield Schools in conjuntion with the Massachusetts Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program promotes healthy alternatives for children and parents in their travel to and from school. It educates students, parents and community members on the value of walking and bicycling for travel to and from school.
