Fall 2019 Travel Surveys
Student Travel Survey packets have been sent to all Solano County schools. Typically the SR2S Program surveys schools twice per year, this year we are conducting the survey only in the Fall. With the single survey period the schools have 4 weeks to complete the 2-day survey. Additional survey materials may be found below for download.
Student Travel Surveys
Since the development of the first Solano County Safe Routes to School Plan in 2008, schools throughout the county have been recording the travel habits of students. Each school year, teachers at participating schools conduct a “hand tally” during multiple days in October and May, asking students to raise hands according to how they got to and from school that day. Schools participating in the SR2S program are encouraged to return the surveys, which are needed to help secure grant funding.
Despite the factors that point to increased driving, the hand tallies suggest progress is being made to get students and parents walking to school more often. STA has begun to implement more robust programming and promote the concept of walking school buses, and the increase in student walking trips may be the fruits of these labors.
