Safe Routes

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.

Roughly 48% of students bicycled or walked to school in 1969.  Today, less than 15% of children walk or bicycle to classes.*

Among children 6-11, the number who are overweight has increased from 4% to 16% since 1963.*

In the late 1960’s, 90% of children who lived within 1 mile of school walked or bicycled.  Today, only 31% of children who live that close to school walk or bicycle.*
