Internationally, SRTS Programs use a comprehensive model of 5 E’s to achieve the goal to make walking and bicycling to school safer and more accessible for children, including those with disabilities, and to increase the number of children who chose to walk and bicycle.
In order to achieve the goals of the Safe Routes to School program, SRTS-SF implements the 5 E’s:
Educate classes about pedestrian safety
Educate classes about bicycle safety
Distribute traffic safety packets to drivers near schools
Distribute walk & bike maps for students specific to schools
