Safe Routes to School

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a program in Rutherford County that works to make walking and bicycling to school safer and to encourage more students and families to use these modes where possible.

Supported by funding from the NC Department of Transportation and RHI Legacy Foundation, the initiative prioritizes safety and skills education, health messages, family and community safety, and community design.

Through the SRTS grant, the RPO is able to offer a variety programs for local schools and organizations, including, but not limited to, the following:
