Safe Routes to School
These pages contain guidance for Safe Routes to School (SRTS) projects that have been awarded in previous funding cycles. The guidance is to assist project managers in the implementation of their previously awarded projects.
Under the MAP-21 federal transportation bill (passed by Congress in late Summer 2012), the Transportation Enhancement and SRTS programs were consolidated into a new program titled Transportation Alternatives.
ADOT is currently preparing guidance on the new Transportation Alternatives program, so please continue to check back here for further updates.
If you are not already on the ADOT SRTS email list, but would like to receive messages and updates on the Program's progress, please provide your name, email address and organization to Kristin Myers.
The Safe Routes to School program was created by the U.S. Congress to address the growing epidemic of childhood obesity and diabetes. From 2006 to 2012, this program provided reimbursable funds for elementary/middle schools to implement projects to encourage children to walk and bicycle to school.
