Safe Routes to School is a federal program that empowers communities to make walking and bicycling to schools a safe and routine activity for all children, including those with disabilities. Goals include making bicycling and walking to school a safer and more appealing transportation alternative.
How is this accomplished? By improving community safety, security, accessibility, and community involvement; improving the physical environment to increase the ability to walk and bicycle to and from schools; and increasing interest in bicycle and pedestrian accommodations throughout a community.
The following public elementary schools within Bismarck have identified safe routes to school for each of their respective locations.
