What is SF SRTS?
Whether you walk, bike, take transit or drive, there’s a family near you trying to get to the same school or afterschool program too. The San Francisco Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program can help you connect with other families at your school and find fun, healthy ways to get your kids to and from school. Our mission is to advance safe, healthy and equitable transportation to and from school in order to foster livable and sustainable communities for San Francisco students and families.
