about the program are all important aspects of monitoring progress.


Your SRTS Team can use this information to monitor changes in program performance and to create more effective events and programs in the future.


How to Get Help Tabulating Results

To help make evaluation even easier, the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University will now tabulate and summarize your results from the Student Arrival and Departure Tally Survey and the NJ Safe Routes to School Parent/Caregiver Survey and return them to you. Evaluation is a good idea at any time, but it might helpful to conduct surveys in October and May, in conjunction with Walk to School Month and Bike Month. It is also important to collect travel data prior to beginning a program in order to establish a baseline of existing conditions. While helpful for any community, evaluation of one type or another is required for recipients of federal Safe Route to School grants awarded through the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT.)


For more information on all of the tools mentioned and how to submit your surveys, see the “Evaluating Your SRTS Program” document in the NJDOT Safe Routes to School Toolbox located at
