Safe Routes To School

Location

Project Category
Mobility
Status
Completed

Over the past decade ActiveSGV has worked with the Cities of Baldwin Park, El Monte, La Puente, Pasadena, San Gabriel, and South El Monte, among other SGV communities, on Safe Routes to School programs, plans, and infrastructure projects. During the same period, an alarming upward trend of childhood obesity and physical inactivity has occurred. Students being driven to school generates substantial traffic congestion and contributes to air pollution that affects the health of everyone in our communities.

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs are part of the solution to reversing these trends. SRTS programs aim at increasing the number of students who choose active (walking, bicycling, scooter, skateboarding) or shared (public transit, carpooling) mode of transportation to school by making it safer and more accessible to walk, bicycle and/or take transit.

ActiveSGV is currently working with the Cities of La Puente, San Gabriel, and Pasadena on local Safe routes to School programs.
