In November, the National Center for Safe Routes to School released a collection of case studies on SRTS programs and activities from across the United States. Each case study tells a story and includes a short description of the town or area in which the program takes place as well as the unique issue that each area faces in regards to safe routes, pedestrian and bicycle safety, and other aspects of getting to and from school safely. Details are provided about each program or activity — when they began, who is involved in the organization, what elements are included in the program or activity. Finally, the results section describes the successes and lessons learned from the planning or implementation of the program or activity.
"We hope these case studies will help promote the SRTS efforts happening across the country, and assist persons interested in starting an SRTS program of their own," said Lauren Marchetti, NCSRTS director.
