San Francisco now has the largest bike to school event in the country. Schools from across the city choose the best day to participate in the big event. Rolling – whether by scooter, skateboard or bus – means that all students are included. Join thousands of San Francisco youth who will pedal and roll their way to school April 17-21.
The Safe Routes to School partnership provides free giveaways for students, resources for organizers, and family biking workshops and practice rides to help you prepare for the big event.
The San Francisco Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS) Partnership, led by the San Francisco Department of Public Health, supports and encourages families to walk and roll to school every day. Walking, biking, and taking public transit to school make up 44% of trips to the 35 public schools that are part of the SRTS program. Bike & Roll to School Week is the culmination of the year-long effort to increase biking, walking and taking transit to school for the health of San Francisco’s children and and sustainability of our communities.
Check out our new, mobile-friendly transportation resource guide to help make the school commute less stressful and more fun! The guide provides information on walking, biking, taking transit, and carpooling, including a link to a ride-sharing app called KidCarPool that will make pooling to school easier. Families at San Francisco Unified School District elementary schools can view a map showing what areas of the city other families are coming from, to make for simpler ride-sharing.
