Celebrating Local Successes

From Walking Wednesdays and bicycle rodeos, to new crosswalks and sidewalks with curb cuts, communities across the country are building SRTS programs tailored to their unique needs and finding success.

The National Center has developed more than 160 detailed descriptions of the activities and lessons learned from local SRTS programs across the United States. These success stories - or case studies - provide examples of how to set and meet goals, how to gauge success and how to regroup, if necessary, to make a program more effective.

Learn how real communities and schools:

  • Fund their projects
  • Overcome challenges to build safe routes to school
  • Incorporate the 5Es (Education, Encouragement, Enforcement and Safety Management, Engineering and Evaluation) into various program aspects

These stories come from small schools and large schools, hospitals and police departments, local and state governments, and the collection will continue to grow as more local programs get under way and begin to show success.
