Safe Routes to School

Safe Routes to School: Connecting the youth by foot, bike, and bus

What is “Safe Routes to School”?

Safe Routes to School is a federally funded program that helps communities to improve safety, reduce traffic congestion, and promote healthy lifestyles by encouraging and enabling children to walk or bike to school.

Mountain Rides’ Safe Routes program supports infrastructure projects that improve walkability, bikeability, and road safety in the Wood River Valley. Our education and encouragement programs and events foster the youth’s civic engagement and active transportation.

Why does Mountain Rides have a Safe Routes to School program?
