SR2S PLAN UPDATE

The Solano Safe Routes to School (SR2S) program encourages children to safely walk or bike to school and supports this effort with free, fun and educational events and programs at schools, and provides safety information and public outreach at community events. The program works with schools, police, public health staff, city traffic engineers and other community members to improve traffic safety and the health and well-being of Solano County youth. STA completed and adopted a SR2S Plan in 2008 and another countywide plan was completed and adopted in 2013. STA Staff is currently engaging communities in each city in preparation for the current Plan update.

The 2023 Safe Routes to School Plan update is intended to guide continued investments in safety projects around schools, programmatic needs to encourage active transportation within the school community, and addresses Ped and Bike Safety for students and families.

The Plan is anticipated to be completed by Fall 2024.

Program History

In 2008, the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) in partnership with Solano County Public Health, launched the Safe Routes to School (SR2S) program in response to concerns about increased childhood obesity, air pollution and traffic around schools.  To address these issues over the years, the program has collaborated with city planners and traffic engineers, law enforcement, educators, and parents. SR2S offers schools free educational programs and events to encourage safe walking and biking to school and works closely with schools by providing technical assistance and support to start walking and biking programs.  Promoting active transportation, such as walking and biking, not only increases students’ physical activity, but helps change our culture of dependence on cars to get to and from school.
