Minnesota Safe Routes to School would not be possible without the support and work of partners across the state.
These are some of our Safe Routes to School partners in Minnesota:
MnDOT has supported SRTS since 2006 and offers grants and statewide programs to communities.
Since 2013 BikeMN has offered the Walk! Bike! Fun! bicycle and pedestrian safety curriculum to schools across Minnesota.
MDH supports safe routes to school through the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership. SHIP focuses on increasing physical activity, improving nutrition and reducing the number of people who use tobacco or are exposed to it.
BCBS MN Center for Prevention started organizing the SRTS Network call in 2009 and has been involved in growing the program ever since.
Since 2011, MnDOT has convened a Safe Routes to School Steering Committee to guide statewide efforts. The Steering Committee was instrumental in developing the Five-year Strategic Plan (2015) and helping launch this Minnesota Safe Routes to School Online Resource Center. More information about the Steering Committee can be found in the Strategic Plan or by contacting the Safe Routes to School Coordinator.
Several other organizations work with MnDOT and local public health departments on Safe Routes to School plans and programs: Metropolitan Planning Organizations, Regional Development Organizations, and Area Transportation Partnerships. Learn more at the MnDOT Planning Partners webpage.
