Sustain your Program

Safe Routes to School programs find support from many different partners. Creative solutions to keeping your efforts moving forward can come from a variety of sources. Building strong relationships with key community partners and leaders and institutionalizing your work into community and school policies and processes is key to sustaining increases in bicycling and walking.

Although not focused exclusively on the active travel needs of students, many advocates, and non-profit organizations work for more walkable and bikeable communities or Complete Streets. For more information on these programs, visit the sites below:
