Safe Routes to School Implementation Project

What is the Safe Routes to School Implementation Project?

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is an international movement to encourage children to walk and bicycle to school. SRTS programs seek to improve safety conditions along routes to school and encourage more walking and bicycling when it is safe to do so. The City of Milwaukee is developing a citywide SRTS policy plan expected to be finalized by Spring 2020.

The City is also developing site-specific SRTS plans for schools across the city. In 2020, the City will be working with 8 schools experiencing significant safety concerns for children walking and bicycling to school. The City will work with the schools, parents and community partners to design infrastructure improvements to the streets in neighborhoods around these schools. These improvements will not only make children's walk or bike to school safer, but can also help students become more active, healthier, and even improve their learning in the classroom!
