Safe Routes to School - Toolkit

Updated in 2007, the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Toolkit contains everything your community needs to start a SRTS program. The goal of this program is to increase the number of children walking and biking to school by making it safer and more accessible to do so. This toolkit was designed with input from SRTS leaders in Wisconsin and across the country and should be a helpful resource for any community at any stage of the SRTS planning process.
