Safe Routes to School 

Walking and bicycling to school allows children to burn energy and keep fit. Safe Routes to School increases the number of students who walk and bike, while strengthening community relationships and neighborhood safety. Through a web of support involving parents, community organizations, the City of Minneapolis and schools, programming is established and maintained in a variety of ways to fit each community’s needs.
