The National Center and the Safe Routes to School National Partnership Release Informational Brief on Safe Routes to School in Tribal Communities

A new information brief issued by the National Center for Safe Routes to School and written by the Safe Routes to School National Partnership provides an overview of successful strategies to implementing Safe Routes to School in tribal communities. While many approaches for implementing Safe Routes to School in tribal areas are similar to those in other communities, there are some considerations that are more specific to tribal communities that influence strategy selection and implementation.

This informational brief highlights three tribal communities in New Mexico, Montana, and Oklahoma that have successfully improved safety for walking and bicycling to school and describes the strategies these communities are using to implement Safe Routes to School and active transportation.
