Safe Routes to School
download our program overview
Walking School Bus
The cornerstone of most Safe Routes to School programming is a walking school bus, a chaperoned walking route for students to get to school. HART can assist you to develop the routes, promote your program and encourage participation.
HART is available to conduct on site bicycle skills workshops or “rodeos” for your school or community.
How “walkable” or “bikeable” is your community? Using easy to follow checklists, HART can help you to identify opportunities and challenges to your Safe Routes to School Program. A great project for student groups, PTA, or other community group.
Teaching children to become knowledgeable pedestrians and bicycles is information that will benefit them throughout their lives. HART staff is available to provide customized in school presentations on crossing safety, basic rules of the road, signal identification, and more.
Speed Sentry Loan Program
Find out how fast cars are really traveling in your community and remind motorist of the posted speed limit with HART’s Speed Sentry variable speed sign loan program. Schools and municipalities may borrow the sign, at no charge, for up to one month at a time to collect speed data and reinforce limits.
School Travel Plans
Developing a school travel plan is great first step in setting priorities for your walk and bike to school program. HART is available to work with your school to create your plan of action.
Infrastructure Grant Assistance
HART is available to assist communities in applying for Safe Routes to School infrastructure grants including grant writing, documentation and letters of support.
