The Safe Routes to School program is a nationwide initiative designed to make bicycling and walking to school a safer, more appealing, and healthier alternative for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
San Leandro’s Safe Routes to School Program will encourage children to embark on a healthier lifestyle by providing increased safety education, enforcement, and infrastructure improvements that will help keep children safer when walking or biking to school.
This program is made possible through a federally-funded Safe Routes to School (SRTS) grant.
