What is Minnesota Safe Routes to School?

Minnesota Safe Routes to School combines the expertise of multiple state agencies with national and local partners to provide parent, school and community groups with the resources needed to support walking and biking to school. This statewide effort promotes the development of comprehensive local SRTS programs that cover all 6 E's: education, encouragement, engagement, engineering, evaluation, and equity.

Our students will gain lifelong healthy habits and improved academic performance through physical activity; our schools become safer with reduced traffic and improved air quality; and our communities become better places to live, learn, work, and play.
