Safe Routes to School – Evaluation

The SRTS Coordinator and Education Consultant began to take formal tallies of student arrivals and departures, using nationally-developed Student Travel Tally forms linked below, in visits to five local schools in September and October 2021.  Among over 600 students reporting, 8.0% reported arriving by non-motorized means on the day of the visit, including 5.8% walking, 1.6% bicycling, and 0.6% by scooter or skateboard.  Over three-quarters of students arrived by their own family’s private vehicle and 15.3% arrived by school bus.

The complete findings on reported mode of arrival, including breakdowns by school, are as follows:
