We frequently hear from communities that the most helpful information to have about the planning process are examples of how Safe Routes to School has been implemented in other communities.
These case studies are a selection of past projects to respond to these requests. They are meant to provide a view into the work done with SRTS funding. Each highlights work across the state which emphasis on the importance of the planning process and how various partnerships come together to deliver a successful SRTS program.
