Safe Routes to School
Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is an international movement to encourage active school travel and safe community routes. Northeast Iowa is home to the state’s first rural, regional SRTS program, managed by UERPC.
- Walking and Biking School Buses or Clubs. A fun, safe and active way for students to travel to school with responsible supervisors.
- Bike Safety Lessons. In-class instruction to provide students with the knowledge, skills and practice for becoming smart, safe bike riders and pedestrians.
- Bike Rodeo Supplies. Schools and communities can utilize UERPC’s Bike Safety Kit for hosting their own bike safety event.
- SRTS Community Coalitions. School and community advocates join forces to build SRTS efforts to support local safety measures.
SRTS is the answer to creating a better world for our children, our school, our communities and ourselves.

If it were any other time of day I could not make it work. I am not an “earlybird” by any means, but I have really enjoyed this.”

“This was so well publicized and ran. My entire family enjoyed ourselves during the event and the kids were so excited to get practice on their big-boy bikes! I hope you continue doing it.”
