If you have a good story to share about how your school or community is creating more opportunities for students to walk and bike more, please let me know. We are always happy to hear from you – and thrilled to be able to share your hard work and success with others in New Jersey and beyond.

The federal SRTS program was first created in August 2005 through Section 1404 of SAFETEA-LU, and authorized at $612 million in funding over five years, through September 2009. According to the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, more than 4,000 elementary and middle schools around the country have already benefited from the federal SRTS money made available through each state’s Department of Transportation. SAFETEA-LU stands for the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (Public Law 109-59).
