The Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS) movement is holding its second year of Walk to School Day this upcoming October 6th.
- Increase bicycle, pedestrian, and traffic safety around schools;
- Decrease traffic congestion around schools;
- Reduce childhood obesity by increasing number of children walking and biking to school; and
- Improve air quality, community safety and security, and community involvement around school
In addition to Walk to School Day, the SRTS is also partnered with San Francisco’s Bike to School Day which is to be held on April 7th, 2011.
