Welcome to the South Carolina Safe Routes to School Resource Center!

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a growing movement across the US that brings together parents, schools, and community leaders to encourage students, including those with disabilities, to walk and bike to school. SRTS activities and resources focus on improving walking and biking conditions around schools while building healthy habits and safety skills.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation created the Safe Routes to School Resource Center in the fall of 2010 to help schools, school districts, and communities throughout South Carolina to build and sustain SRTS programs.

Partners of the Resource Center receive technical assistance and program support at no cost. We encourage you to get in touch with us and become a partner of the South Carolina Resource Center!
