Welcome to the Michigan Safe Routes to School Program!  SRTS is an international movement that makes it safe, convenient, and fun for students to walk, roll, and bike to school. The Michigan SRTS program is managed by the Michigan Department of Transportation with support provided by the Michigan Fitness Foundation, and seeks to:

  • Enable and encourage students in grades K-8, including those with disabilities, to walk and bicycle to school;
  • Make bicycling and walking to school a safer and more appealing transportation choice, thereby encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age;
  • Facilitate the planning, development, and implementation of projects and activities that will improve safety and reduce traffic, fuel consumption, and air pollution in the vicinity of elementary and middle schools
